Global Patient Safety Challenges

Every year, millions of patients suffer injuries or die due to unsafe health care globally. 134 million adverse events occur annually in low- and middle-income countries alone, contributing to 2.6 million deaths.

Dr. Rana will accompany you for 30 minutes talking about the challenges that we have to deal with at a global level.
