Recognizing International Nurses Day

In addition to collaborating with nurses in the US to improve healthcare in underserved areas and protect the environment, Global Links supports nurses in the hospitals we partner with in Latin America and the Caribbean. The materials we provide, from neonatal stethoscopes or bassinets to delivery room furnishings, help nurses provide care for their patients.

During her last trip to Guyana, program officer Marisol Valentin was pleased to meet and talk with several nursing teams. One group was at Bartica, which serves the 2nd largest district in Guyana and where in the last year Global Links provided medical furnishings and equipment to assist in remodeling undertaken by the Ministry of Health.
At Suddie Hospital, recent donations from Global Links included support materials for its cancer screening department, maternity ward, and patient wards.
Global Links is proud to work with nurses, both in the US and overseas. Our work links these two groups –nurses who support our work in US hospitals ultimately support their colleagues in the underserved areas of Latin America and the Caribbean. Today, International Nurses Day, we want to thank all the nurses we know, all over the world.
