Nursing Now Peru was launched on 9th August, with a mass demonstration of solidarity among nurses on the Avenida de la Peruanidad. The objective of this meeting was to give visibility to the work carried out by nurses. Participants highlighted the various roles and specialities of nurses as health professionals.

To encourage participation and positive online presence, Nurisng Now Peru ran a competition to see who could come up with the best hashtag for the event. The winner was #EnfermeríaGrandeYFuerte – meaning ‘strong nursing’.
