The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) will be holding its three-day 7th National Congress from the 30th, 31st of October to the 1st of November at Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg, in Ekurhuleni, under the theme: “Advancing unity for nurses”.
The National Congress is the highest decision-making structure of DENOSA and it meets once every four years where the organisation's strategic direction for the next four years is paved and where leadership that will lead the organisation for the next four years will be elected.
The Guest Speakers to address the more than 600 delegates on the first and last days of the DENOSA Congress will include leaders from COSATU, the ANC, SACP, Government, Department of Health, regulatory body for nursing in South Africa (South African Nursing Council - SANC) and guests from international health organisations.
Deliberations at the congress will centre around health matters in general and state of nursing in particular and the role that nurses must play in advancing the concept of Universal Health Coverage, which is a global health agenda as envisaged and committed to by nations of the world locally, regionally and internationally.
The congress will take place in the background where South Africa prepares to move into second gear in the implementation of NHI, as well as achieving the health targets as outlined in the National Development Plan (NDP).
This is the gathering of the category that makes up majority health professionals in both the country and the world, and their reflections on the current state of health in the country and where it should be, in the presence of many heads of nursing within government, is the most relevant platform.
Members of the media are cordially invited to the first and third days of the Congress and report.
