Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


We call on our international nursing community to acknowledge the contribution of Indigenous nurses worldwide, whose historical marginalization further impacts the health of Indigenous peoples. The World Health Organization (WHO, 2007/2018) estimates over “370 million Indigenous peoples living in more than 70 countries” representing the world’s most marginalized groups with significant health disparities. We have an important opportunity to advance nursing and health for all through the International Alliance of Indigenous Nurses (IAIN).
