nurses are essential in delivering health services to our people.

responsibility to improve the health of the population as well as to contribute
towards achievement of global development goals.
Ministerial Spokesperson Helene Rossouw said
that this year the message is that nurses are the heartbeat of healthcare.
“The International Council of Nurses theme
