Bridging the gaps for health: the GAPFON report

Roger Watson
The first phase of the work of GAPFON – the Global Advisory Panel on the Future of Nursing – is complete and this is marked by an 80-page main report with appendices identifying and confirming global health and professional priorities, the GAPFON model reflecting these, and the strategies designed to meet them. GAPFON was an initiative of Sigma Theta Tau International, led by Hester Klopper, formerly President of Sigma Theta Tau International and Martha Hill, Dean Emeritus of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. The purpose of GAPFON (2017) is to: ‘establish a voice and vision for the future of midwifery that will advance global health while simultaneously strengthening professional roles’ (p. 3).
