Health and Human Rights Award

The ICN Health and Human Rights Award was created in 2000 by the ICN Board of Directors to call attention to ICN’s values and to commemorate nursing’s fundamental dedication to human rights. The award aims at recognising significant humanitarian contributions and achievements in the domain of health and human rights.  It is ICN’s only award given to someone who is not a nurse.
