World Patient Safety Day

On the first-ever World Patient Safety Day on 17 September 2019, WHO will launch a global campaign to create awareness of patient safety and urge people to show their commitment to making healthcare safer. Every patient must play an important role in his/her own safety and get involved in their health system. Greater patient involvement is the key to safer care. Engaging patients in the treatment of their conditions does not only improve health outcomes but also reduce costs! Different events around the world are planned.
