Abstract In honor of Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared 2020 the "Year of the Nurse and Midwife". On May 5th of this year, for the annual celebration of the SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands campaign, WHO will focus on the essential role that nurses and midwives play in contributing to saving millions of lives per year. It is necessary to recognize the work and the immense responsibility that nurses and midwives carry since achieving Universal Health Coverage is highly reliant on them.
