On 5th December 2017 Health First Europe launched at the European Parliament the Declaration for Patient Safety which calls the Ministers of Health of the EU to agree on a high level of understanding on patient safety practices and standards to drive their national policies into a common path.
Patient harm is the 14th leading cause of the global disease burden, a threat to human health alike tuberculosis and malaria. Governments must act now to stop preventable harm and guarantee a safer healthcare in Europe - You might find references and further info on the Declaration for Patient Safety at http://declaration4patientsafety.eu/ - now available also in French – German – Italian – Spanish.
Now - we ask for your help!
We call patients, healthcare workers, and all citizens to join our effort to ensure patient safety by signing our Declaration. In this respect, we are very glad to announce that the Declaration for Patient Safety is now live at Avaaz.org – a very easy and powerful petition website to collect individual signatures across Europe (link: https://goo.gl/T5iAJY).
Help us to reach our target of 10.000 signatures!
