The WHO Global Patient Safety Action Plan 2021-2030: Implications for Patient Engagement in Pharma

The WHO Global Patient Safety Action Plan 2021-2030 is a key document that outlines the changes and aspirations that the WHO has for the next decade around protection and wellbeing of patients. The plan, produced on 3 August 2021, aims to educate various stakeholders (NHS, HCPs, pharma and patient groups) about current issues surrounding patient safety and outline their proposed solutions1. The main goal over the next 10 years is a ‘zero harm philosophy’1.
