On May 25, 2019, the World Healthcare Assembly adopted the “Global Patient Safety Action” resolution and declared September 17 as the World Patient Safety Day.

The goal of World Day is to raise global awareness of patient safety and promote international solidarity in actions aimed at improving safety and reducing harm for patients around the world, both in the professional community and the patients themselves, their relatives and various organizations representing the interests of patients.

Students of KSMU celebrated this day by holding an action, within the framework of which they handed out memos with relevant information to the residents of Kursk, as well as balloons with the KSMU logo.
