Today, 7 April 2020 is World Health Day.  The World Health Organisation have declared this year the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife and a day to celebrate their work.  The aim before Covid-19 was to highlight the current status of nursing around the world.   It is safe to say Covid-19 has turned all eyes onto everyone working in a medical capacity.  

While the World Health Organisation would like to remind world leaders of the critical role nurses and other health workers are providing on the frontline of Covid-19 response, the Mouth Cancer Foundation would like to thank and honour these healthcare workers who are our first line of defence against Coronavirus.    Their work is courageous and critical in saving lives.
