Can Nurse. 2005 Jun;101(6):25-8.

Nurses have a pivotal role to play in the pursuit of global health and equity, including achieving the goals, but their capacity to contribute has been largely untapped. In this article, the authors examine strategies to mitigate inequities in global health within an international development framework, threats to achieving equity in health and the implications of these issues for nurses and nursing.
