What should this year's theme be for Patient Solidarity Day?

Friday, 17 February 2017

In 2016 IAPO members were given a choice of four themes for Patient Solidarity Day and they voted on patient-centred UHC as their preferred topic. This year we are asking for everyone within IAPO’s network (both members and non-members) to send us suggested topics for the Patient Solidarity Day 2017 theme. Once we have collected the suggestions we will use them to create a series of themes that IAPO members will vote on in the Spring.

This year's Patient Solidarity Day will be held on Saturday 2 December 2017 so save the date.

When thinking about possible themes, please remember that they need to be universal enough to unite patients and advocates from every corner of the world, working on any condition area. It is up to you whether you suggest a very specific and developed theme (and even a tag-line!), or whether your suggestion is a broad topic.

Below is a list of past themes:

  • 2013: Improve lives through patient-centred healthcare
  • 2014: One Voice. United. Universal (Universal Health Coverage)
  • 2015: Healthcare is a Human Right
  • 2016: Leave no-one behind: patient-centred universal healthcare for all

Deadline for suggestions: Friday 10 March.​
