Nurses in the country are reflecting on ways to better their profession, ahead of the International Nurses Day commemorations later this week.

Activities for the day will be held in the northern region district of Nkhotakota.

This will be under the theme, “Nurses: a Voice to Lead- Achieving Sustainable Development Goals”.

This year’s theme aims to raise awareness both among the nursing profession, the citizenry and policy makers on what the Sustainable Development Goals are and why they matter.

The United Nations set May 12 aside to pay tribute to all nurses who save lives and care for patients.

The day also gives people a chance to reflect on the progress made in the profession, challenges and the way forward.

According to a statement by the National Organisation of Nurses and Midwives of Malawi (NONM), nurses and midwives are striving to execute their duties well, despite the challenges that they face.

Some of them being insufficient funding by government to the health sector, lack of resources in hospitals and low monthly wages.

NONM, founded in 1979, is an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental union and professional organisation representing nurses and midwives; the healthcare service and the Malawi society. 

Its vision is to have a strong, vibrant, and visionary organisation that will result in a motivated and empowered nurse/midwife. 


Its mission is to promote and maintain members’ professional interests and socioeconomic welfare to effectively contribute to quality healthcare services rendered to the nation.

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?
    I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the
    nail on the head. The problem is something not enough
    people are speaking intelligently about. I am
    very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning

    I'm truly enjoying the design and layout
    of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
    to create your theme? Great work!

    Hello! I could have sworn I've been to this site before but after looking at some of
    the posts I realized it's new to me. Nonetheless, I'm definitely pleased I discovered it and I'll be bookmarking it and checking
    back often!
