The Office of Nursing and Midwifery, WHO Geneva and the WHO Collaborating Centre for Nursing Midwifery and Health Development (WHO CC UTS) are working together to establish a virtual global nursing and midwifery leadership group for Government Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officers (GCNMO). The WHO CC UTS will provide the Secretariat to the GLC. Strategic use of expertise of a number of WHO CC and other relevant groups will progress the work of the GLC.
A steering committee meeting was held during first half of 2010 to develop Government Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officers (GCNMO) Roles and Responsibilities package to be presented at the GCNMO Forum in Geneva, May 2010. The Roles and Responsibilities Package was further developed during the year, presented at the SPCNMOA meeting in November, New Zealand. The consensus paper, the first product of the package, was ratified at the WHO Global Advisory Group for Nursing and Midwifery to the Director General in December 2010. The rest of the Roles and Responsibilities package will be further developed with GLC in 2011. GLC membership in the GANM knowledge gateway site increases to 35 countries.
Increasing global collaboration through a virtual group and provide a network to support global nursing and midwifery leadership for Government Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officers.
