In May 2019, the 72nd World Health Assembly endorsed the establishment of World Patient Safety Day to be observed annually on 17th September. The objective of the very first World Patient Safety Day is to raise global awareness about patient safety with the theme “Patient Safety, a global health priority”.

To celebrate this event Riphah Institute of Healthcare Improvement & Safety (RIHIS) as the custodian of Patient Safety in Riphah International Islamic University is organizing a series of events on 17th September 2019 with the World Health Organization for the first time in Pakistan. We plan to organize a series of events to celebrate this day, to increase awareness of patient safety and urge people to show their commitment to making healthcare safer.
