Call for Abstracts

Our world today is far from being safe, healthy or peaceful. Many countries are experiencing war or civil conflict; there are more refugees than ever before seeking a safe place to live for themselves and their families; bush fires, floods, earthquakes and tsunamis are a frequent occurrence; diseases such as Ebola and Zika threaten health and stability; climate change threatens entire populations.

Nurses and midwives are in a unique position to lead the way in promoting a safe, healthy and peaceful world through their work with individuals in health and education; with vulnerable groups; with young people; in disaster areas and in conflict zones; with refugees; by being an activist; and by influencing governments and their policies.

Your abstract should demonstrate, through your work, your projects, or your research, how you, as a nurse or midwife, are leading the way and contributing
to a safe, healthy and peaceful world.
