May 5th is the International Day of the Midwife and The Duchess of Cambridge has marked the completion of Nursing Now, a three year global campaign to raise the status and profile of nursing, by interviewing midwife Harriet Nayiga for the May edition of Nursing Times.
Harriet spoke to The Duchess about her work in Uganda as a nurse and as the founder of Midwife-led Community Transformation (MILCOT), a community organisation providing advice and support for vulnerable women and girls.
Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge is the Royal Patron of Nursing Now. The Duchess wore Zara Tailored Double-Breasted Blazer (ID by Heaven_LeeM) and Orelia Jewellery Gold Chain Huggie Hoop Earrings.
Over the last three years more than 31,000 young professionals have signed up for Nursing Now’s Nightingale Challenge, 64 Nursing Now groups have reported increased investment in nursing and there has also been an increase of nurses in leadership positions, as Chief Nursing Officers and on boards, who are able to exercise greater influence in shaping policy and service delivery.
The May edition of Nursing Times is a special issue, with a cover chosen by The Duchess, celebrating the work of Nursing Now. Harriet’s interview, forms part of a special set of articles to celebrate the three-year Nursing Now initiative, which is drawing to a close this month.
