The Women in Global Health list of 100 Outstanding Women Nurses and Midwives Leaders has featured four Nigerian women amidst others selected globally.
They were named as part of activities to mark the 2020 International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.
A statement by the WGH and YONM named the four Nigerian women as Mary Ozuruonye Agholor, Edidiong Asanga, Emmanualla Inah, and Onyinyechi Susan Madu.
The statement explained that the 100 women were chosen for “their everyday heroism and service”, amidst the global health challenges.
“During the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, amidst a global pandemic, the courageous work of Nurses and Midwives deserves, more than ever, to be honored–not just by applause. Let us use the stories of their everyday heroism and service to call for all countries to invest in decent work and a new social contract for nurses and midwives as part of their commitment to health for all,” it explained.
