The role of nurses in global health and NCDs: what do you think?
With the rise in the cases of NCD in the developing world, nurses
occupy the front seat in the fight against them. Uganda, where I come
from is experiencing high numbers of patients with health challenges
as a result of altered nutrition, impaired physical activity and
sedentary lifestyles where nurses actively participate in Health
education, Diagnosis and Management of these cases.
I believe that similar situations do happen in other resource limited
settings like Uganda, adding credit to the nursing community as major
contributors to Global Health.
