After a remarkable career in the medical field, the Lebanese Wahida Ghalayini was the winner of the 2022 SIDIIEF Recognition Award, among other winners from France, Switzerland, and Canada.

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, she collaborated with the World Health Organization (WHO) in training hospital nurses in the care of patients with Coronavirus as well as in the application of preventive measures.

In 2021, Wahida Ghalayini also received the Florence Nightingale Medal, an award that honors the most exceptional nurses and nursing aides.

She has now been granted the recognition award by the SIDIIEF, which is a global network of francophone nursing experts from associations, professional orders, healthcare, and educational institutions.
