About GAPFON: The Global Advisory Panel on the Future of Nursing (GAPFON) was convened by The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) to establish a voice and a vision for the future of nursing that will advance global health. GAPFON seeks to provide evidence on the value of nursing and to participate in and influence health policy, nursing leadership and practice, education, and the global health agenda.
GAPFON is chaired by Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Dean Emerita and Professor Martha Hill, PhD, RN, FAAN. The 14 panel members, independent of the organizations they serve, are some of the world’s most prominent nurse leaders.
