Regional PFPS declarations

The Regional PFPS Declarations have been created as a call to action to people around the world to raise awareness and be involved in patient engagement and advocacy efforts to improve patient safety.

All PFPS Champions, Associates and Collaborative Organizations commit to the principles and vision outlined in the London Declaration. A number of regional declarations have also been developed to reflect the specific needs and context of the region.
