The World Patient Safety Day is organized by World Health Organization each year on September 17th for all stakeholders of the health care system. This campaign was initiated in May 2019 during the 72nd World Health Assembly, with the adoption of resolution on “Global action on patient safety”.
The 2020 topic is on “Health workers safety: a priority for patient safety” to increase public awareness about the importance of the patient safety which must be a global health priority and to call global solidarity. They want also to remind the need for a safe working environment for health workers.
The slogan of this year is “Safe health workers, Safe patients!”
