Since 1977, CGFNS has been at the forefront of providing opportunity to nurses who wish to migrate to energize the countries they are migrating to and quite often, the countries they return to, transforming themselves and their families in the process.

CGFNS joins the UN in recognizing Oct 17 as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

Despite progress on global economic development, the UN estimated that almost 8% of the world’s workers and their families lived on less than $1.90 per person per day in 2018.

But poverty isn’t just about low wages; the theme for this year, acting together to achieve social and environmental justice for all, is a reminder that to truly #EndPoverty, we cannot focus on income issues alone.

People in poverty often experience interrelated challenges that end up reinforcing their socioeconomic status and preventing them from living in dignity, such as limited access to healthcare, poor job prospects, dangerous work conditions, and no voice in the halls of power. As an NGO in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, CGFNS is proud to lend its expertise in global health workforce recruitment, development, and mobility in support of multilateral initiatives to eradicate poverty through holistic solutions that address the multidimensional issues that perpetuate it worldwide.

CGFNS recognizes the courage and dedication of healthcare workers everywhere working in difficult conditions to provide quality care during COVID-19.



Nurses were already vulnerable to stress and burnout before the pandemic, which has only magnified the effects of such risks on their mental health, such as anxiety and depression. According to @ICN, 60% of national nursing associations have received consistent reports of mental health distress from nurses in COVID-19 response, but there has been no additional funding for mental health services in 80% of countries since the pandemic began, a WHO survey found.



This a critical workforce issue with implications for the recruitment and retention of nurses even after this time of crisis: The lost productivity resulting from depression and anxiety, two of the most common mental disorders, costs the global economy US$ 1 trillion each year, according to the WHO. The good news is that there is a US$ 5 return for every US$ 1 invested in scaled-up treatment for those conditions. Hospitals, healthcare facilities, and their administrators can also have a significant role in promoting nurse’s mental health, as a recent study in Nursing Management found that resilient nurses and those who perceived higher organizational and social support were more likely to report lower anxiety related to COVID‐19.



That’s why we are proud to join the WHO this #WorldMentalHealthDay to call for more investment and support mental health services, including for all healthcare workers facing unprecedented challenges from COVID-19.
