The Nightingale Initiative for Global Health — often called ‘NIGH’ — is a catalytic grassroots-to-global movement and community — remembering and appreciating why, how and what Florence Nightingale achieved in her time. Our Vision is to follow in her footsteps — in our time — with three mandates:
Our Mission is to engage the common values and wisdom of millions of nurses, midwives and concerned citizens and to act as a catalyst for the transformation of individuals, communities and society for the achievement of a healthy world.
Our Values include promoting and modeling new methods for working together in the global community and raising global public concern and commitment to achieving a healthy world.
We value collaborative initiatives and communications to give nurses, midwives and concerned citizens a voice and create opportunities for them to realize the potential for their unique contributions toward health and well-being for all.
We honour the legacy of Florence Nightingale and other nurses and healthcare workers — past and present — who have shown, by their example, how their actions contribute significantly to a peaceful, prosperous and healthy world.
