9th Global Patients Congress
Wednesday, 16 September 2020 to Thursday, 17 September 2020
In light of current circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic and in the best interest of participants, we have made the difficult but inevitable decision to postpone the 9th Global Patients Congress to a virtual event on 16 -17 September 2020, under the theme of 'Co-creation in Innovative Healthcare during COVID-19'.
The re-imagined 9th Global Patients Congress (GPC 2020) will be a moment to reflect on the defining health crisis of COVID-19 and its impact on the global patient community. The Congress will be an opportunity for focused conversation on the next steps in health system strengthening and preparedness through patient led and co-created innovative solutions in 2020 and beyond.
With day 2 of GPC coinciding with the World Patient Safety Day, whose theme is 'Health Worker Safety: A Priority for Patient Safety', the day's programme will highlight the theme so aptly underscored by the COVID-19 pandemic that without health worker safety, there can be no patient safety.
Registrations for GPC 2020 will be open soon. We hope you can join us and add your voice to the global patient debate.
