Our Activities

We are involved in running and taking part in events all across the world. We raise awareness and speak out on key patient issues, bring our members together and support a range of different initiatives.  

Global Patients Congress

The Global Patients Congress is our flagship event where we bring together our global membership with a variety of high level healthcare stakeholders to discuss important issues for patients worldwide.  

Patient Solidarity Day

Patient Solidarity Day takes place each December. Thousands of people from around the world rally around one key issue facing patients and raise awareness by hosting events and showing support for the Day.  

Regional work

We work in seven regions across the world. We divide the world based on the six regions of the World Health Organization (WHO), with the exception of the Americas, which we split between North America (USA and Canada), and Latin America and the Caribbean.


We add our voice to campaigns that focus on putting patients at the centre of healthcare.  

Research Projects
