ABOUT THE EVENT

Topic: The triple impact of nursing: better health, greater gender equality and stronger economies

Synopsis: In September 2015 the nations of the world signed up to the ambitious goal of ensuring that everyone in the world should have access to health care — universal health coverage — and that nobody should be left behind.

The Triple Impact Report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Global Health, makes the point that UHC cannot possibly be achieved without strengthening nursing globally. This is partly about increasing the number of nurses, but also crucially about making sure their contribution is properly understood and enabling them to work to their full potential.

The report argues that strengthening nursing will have the triple impact of improving health, promoting gender equality and supporting economic growth.

Nurses are by far the largest part of the professional health workforce and achieving universal health coverage globally will depend on them being able to use their knowledge and skills to the full. Yet they are too often undervalued and their contribution underestimated.

The triple impact report argues that there is an urgent need globally to raise the profile of nursing and enable nurses to work to their full potential if countries are to achieve universal health coverage. Nursing can and must take the lead on these issues but cannot achieve them without the support of politicians, policy-makers and non-nursing leaders.

Through our panel of speakers this event will facilitate discussion and debate regarding the future of healthcare in Australia through the lens of the Triple Impact Report.
