2020 Retrospective: Year of the Nurse & Midwife

Long before COVID-19, the year 2020 had been designated by the World Health Organization as the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife to advance nurses' and midwives' vital position in transforming healthcare around the world. The global pandemic has made nursing even more vitally important, but also more challenging for nursing staff worldwide. With the '2020 Retrospective: Year of the Nurse & Midwife', the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH) and International SOS want to pay tribute to nurses and midwives for their outstanding contributions to health and care, as well as look at initiatives and experiences in digital health that can support them.
