Countdown to Patient Solidarity Day
Patient Solidarity Day (PSD) 2018 is less than a month away and everyone’s contribution can really make a difference towards ensuring Safe Medication and Healthcare for All.
Once again, IAPO is supporting its members with grants to hold activities in celebration of PSD. This year, 11 member organizations were the recipients of the PSD grants and will hold varied activities all over the world to advocate for patient safety in their own countries. Find out all about it here.
On 7 November, IAPO and Fight the Fakes held a joint webinar to explore the opportunities that exist for patient advocates in tackling falsified and substandard medical products on a global scale. Engaging questions followed the presentations, and attendees reported tremendous satisfaction with the session. Find out all about it here.
