Millions of nurses around the world impact patient lives and outcomes. No matter where nurses work, future-proofing healthcare requires transforming care, education and research. The European Nursing Congress discussed some of these topics which are of pressing priority for the healthcare sector. It has established itself as a major event for nurses, researchers, and policy makers from Europe and all parts of the globe.

Nurse Anna Qabale Duba was a speaker at the Future Proof Nursing Summit which was held virtually from 4th - 7th October 2022 with world leaders in nursing participating. Anna, who works at Marsabit County Referral Hospital in Kenya, was the first female graduate from her village and the only educated woman in her family. During the summit, Anna spoke to the 800+ participants about her journey. During her nursing studies, she won the Miss Tourism Kenya 2013. She used her influence to advocate for gender equality and education in her community. Under the Qabale Duba Foundation, she built a school in her village where children could study in the morning and adults in the afternoon. The community literacy program currently has over 150 children and 100 adult learners. Anna, who was named the winner of the $250,000 Aster Guardians Global Nursing Award 2022, is now utilizing the opportunity to build a school for children and adult learning in the remote village of Turbi in Kenya. Hailing from the same village she plans to bridge the literacy gap among nomadic rural communities in North Kenya.

“I am extremely thankful to the team at Future Proof Nursing Summit who gave me an opportunity to tell my story and speak alongside industry veterans and global leaders in Nursing. It is a privilege to be able to tell one’s journey in front of the world and I really hope to inspire more people to join nursing and serve the community. I encourage nurses around the world to utilise the opportunity presented by Aster Guardians Global Nursing Award to share their amazing stories with the world.
