World Patient Safety Day

On the occasion of World Patient Safety Day, the "Awareness-Raising Caravan" made a stop at the UIR Campus. To celebrate this day, the World Health Organization (WHO) is highlighting this issue and inviting patients, health workers and the health sector as a whole to make their voices heard as they advocate for patient safety.

During World Patient Safety Day, several cities around the world showed their support for patient safety by illuminating some of their monuments in orange: the Geneva water jet, the pyramids in Cairo, the Menara Tower in Kuala Lumpur, the Royal Opera House in Muscat and the Zakim Bridge in Boston....

The date of the International Patient Safety Day was adopted in May 2019 at the Seventy-second World Health Assembly.
