Learning Nursing to Heal a Community.


• Nurses play a critical role in health promotion, disease prevention and delivering primary and community care. They provide care in emergency settings and will be key to the achievement of universal health coverage.

• Nurses are often the first and sometimes the only health professional that people see and the quality of their initial assessment, care and treatment is vital. They are also part of their local community - sharing its culture, strengths and vulnerabilities - and can shape and deliver effective interventions to meet the needs of patients, families and communities.

• Investing in nurses and midwives is good value for money. The report of the "UN High Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth" concluded that investments in education and job creation in the health and social sectors result in a triple return of improved health outcomes, global health security, and inclusive economic growth.


a) The World:

There is a global shortage of health workers, in particular nurses and midwives, who represent more than 50% of the current shortage in health workers.

A minimum threshold of 2.3 doctors, nurses and midwives per 1000 population that was established by WHO as necessary to deliver essential health services.

b) Mexico:

According to the WHO 2018 World Health Statistics, Mexico had a Density of nursing and midwifery personnel (per 1000 population) of 2.6.

According to the 2018 report "ASI ESTAMOS JUAREZ - Sistema de indicadores de calidad de vida":

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
