Recognise Black Nurses and Midwives 2020-2021

2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife and the WHO have decided to link this campaign to Florence Nightingale as 2020 is her bicentennial year.

CATSINaM has chosen to celebrate thousands of years of traditional birthing and healing practice by acknowledging and celebrating our trailblazing Nurses and Midwives. CATSINaM will be highlighting the stories of our members through our campaign:
#RecogniseBlackNursesandMidwives2020
