Jeddah, September 16, 2021, SPA -- The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia joins the world in celebrating World Patient Safety Day 2021 that is annually marked on September 17 to ensure patients' safety and priority in the field of providing healthcare services.
Saudi Patient Safety Center (SPSC) stressed that the 72nd World Health Assembly, affiliated with the World Health Organization, adopted in May 2019 global action on patient safety "WHA72.6", which guarantees celebrating a world day on patient safety each year.
SPSC noted that this year witnessed the inauguration of an awareness campaign under the theme “Safe maternal and newborn care”, which aims at raising community awareness on the safety of mothers and newborns, in addition to supporting and accrediting the best health practices to reduce risks and deaths that can be avoided during delivery.
