Hosted by the Singapore Nurses Association, the international gathering of thousands of nurses explored the many ways in which nurses work to achieve universal access to health, not only providing health care but also addressing the social determinants of health, such as education, gender equality, poverty, etc.
The Congress provided opportunities for nurses to build relationships and to disseminate nursing and health-related knowledge.
