WHO website

The Patient Safety and Risk Management unit at WHO HQ in Geneva has recently re-launched its Patient Safety website.

The site is cleaner, crisper and easily navigated to find a wealth of information.

Have a look at:

WHO Patient Safety (health topic page)
WHO Patient Safety (programme page).

The sites include a wide range of resources and WHO initiatives concerning patient safety and risk management.

The new website has been updated to be in line with the WHO vision, and will serve as an invaluable resource in moving the patient safety agenda forward globally. 

These are the sites to visit for the very latest on the WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge – Medication without Harm - to reduce severe, avoidable medication-associated harm by 50%, over the next five years. 

A navigation pane on the left of the page allows for quick access to important content areas, ranging from policies and strategies to education and training to patient engagement. The ‘Publications’ page includes a library of all WHO patient safety publications all accessible from one page, separated into topic areas and chronological order.

Along with the navigation page, the landing page of the site also includes a ‘Highlights’ section where recent key activities are outlined, providing easy access to information on the latest WHO global initiatives in patient safety.
