The World Patient Safety Day builds on a successful series of Global Ministerial Summits on Patient Safety pioneered in 2016 at London as well as relentless advocacy by leaders from all sectors — politicians, patient champions, patient safety experts and global public health leaders. The establishment of an annual World Patient Safety Day will give an opportunity to providers, seekers and managers of health care services to join a platform and express solidarity and compassion to make health care safer. The origin of the day is firmly grounded in the fundamental principle of medicine – First, to do no harm.
We support the WHO campaign.
We are delighted to announce the World Patient Safety Day 2021 entitled “Safe maternal and newborn care”. As last year, ISoP will organise several free webinars and activities, which will take place on September 16th and 17th, 2021.
