The MedSafe app an initiative of the World Health Organization seeks to educate patients and the general public through the 5 key moments where action taken can reduce the risk of medication-related harm.

Its principles encourage you to ask your health care professional important questions, keep the answers in a structured way to better manage your medications.

The MedSafe app was created as part of the 5 Moments for Medication Safety, a patient engament tool developed to support implementation of the third WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge: Medication Without Harm. Each moment includes 5 critical questions. 

Some of the questions are reflective for the patient and some require support from health professional to be answered and reflected upon correctly.
