TiNY HEALTH CAMPAING LAUNCH

TINY Health is a specialised children’s health publisher, improving how children and their families are communicated with about their health.

One of the latest booklet talks about vaccination to help school age children to understand vaccines.
This booklet looks at how vaccines were discovered, how our bodies fight infection, and how vaccines help them to do so. It also explores what happens on the day that the vaccination nurse comes to school, or when a child visits a medical clinic to receive a vaccine.

Download the booklet and share it with your tiny patients and their families to create conversation and trust around vaccines.
There are two versions of the booklet :
1. For children who are vaccinated in the school setting.
2. For children who are vaccinated in a medical setting.
The vaccine booklet is available in English, French and Spanish.

Investing in a stronger nursing workforce is essential for achieving universal health coverage (UHC)

Investing in a stronger nursing workforce is essential for achieving universal health coverage (UHC). This is the message delivered by WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in his surprise appearance before the 2019 Congress of the International Council of Nurses.

“We simply cannot achieve universal health coverage and the health-related targets in the Sustainable Development Goals unless we empower and equip nurses and midwives, and harness their power,” insisted Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
