The International Year of Health and Care Workers

The International Year of Health and Care Workers

By Dr. Fikrejesus Amahazion

1. The International Year of Health and Care Workers

This year, 2021, is officially recognized by the global community as the International Year of Health and Care Workers (IYHCW). The original decision came late last year when the World Health Organization (WHO) and its affiliated bodies made the designation in recognition of health and care workers’ dedication to providing care during and despite the COVID- 19 pandemic that has challenged health systems worldwide. Health and care workers include all those engaged in health services, public health and related areas, as well as those providing support to these activities. This broad category of workers encompasses health professionals such as doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, and physiotherapists, in addition to allied health professionals, such as mental health workers, social care workers, occupational health workers, radiographers, laboratory workers, and others.
