Practical Tools for Advocacy, Information Sharing, and Community Activism
The Partners In Health Global Nursing Reader (PDF download, 123 KB) is a new publication of PIH’s Global Nursing Program. The Reader is a bimonthly summary of key articles, resources, and news briefs that highlight global nursing and midwifery, social justice, and human rights. It illuminates areas where PIH works and issues on which PIH focuses. The Reader also includes information provided by international health organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the International Council of Nurses. It is by no means a comprehensive resource, but rather a means to explore the roles and contributions of nurses and midwives in global health around the world.
If you are interested in receiving future issues of the Global Nursing Reader, please email Maggie Sabey (firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to forward this to colleagues and friends who may be interested.
