Now a classic YouTube video featuring rare, historic photos dating back to establishing the World Health Organization archives, this video — in its many language versions — is a favorite example of NIGH’s work to demonstrate the ‘common ground’ of health care, nursing, and midwifery across the world. Within so many settings & cultures — from cradle to grave — nurses & midwives, NOW MORE THAN EVER for a healthy world!
In 2008 & 2009, Asoka Roy’s family created a Platinum Sponsorship of the Nightingale Declaration Campaign to honor the memory of their sister — a pioneering nurse & midwife in both India & the United States. Projects developed from this contribution included an India-wide outreach of the Nightingale Declaration dedicated to Asoka’s memory.
