One of the keys to keeping patients safe is keeping health workers safe.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us of the vital role health workers play to relieve suffering and save lives.
Globally, around 14% of COVID-19 cases reported to WHO are among health workers, and in some countries it’s as much as 35%.
Every day, health workers are exposed to stress, burnout, stigma, discrimination and even violence.
To mark World Patient Safety Day, WHO is launching a charter on health worker safety, which we invite all countries, hospitals, clinics and partners to endorse and implement.
Now more than ever, we have a duty to give health workers the safe working conditions, the training, the pay and the respect they deserve.
