Launch of ‘Health Worker Safety: A Priority for Patient Safety’ Charter

WHO Director-General's opening remarks at the press briefing: 

* 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.
