Today is World Health Day and this year’s theme is: ‘International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife’, to highlight the vital role of health workers, around the globe.

As the world responds to the COVID-19 crisis, health workers are at the front line of the outbreak response: exposed to the risk of infection, working longer and longer hours, missing their families: for all of us.

We are reminded, more than ever before, of their bravery, their sacrifice, and the critical part they play in keeping the world healthy.

Health workers, this World Health Day is dedicated to YOU. We appreciate you. We applaud you. And we thank you.
