The International Council of Nurses (ICN) has released a new report detailing its contributions to the 73rd World Health Assembly (WHA73) and the 148th WHO Executive Board meeting (EB148).
On 9-14 November 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) held a resumed session of the 73rd World Health Assembly following the reduced (de minimis) meeting of 18-19 May 2020. See here for WHA73 closing remarks by ICN CEO Howard Catton.
The report also covers the agenda item “COVID-19 response” during the de minimis session held in May 2020 and certain written procedure items that were summarized at WHA73. It provides a brief overview of agenda items that are of particular importance to nursing and to ICN and its member National Nurses Associations.
