The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) celebrates the sixth Qatari Patient Safety Week, from September 13-19, under the slogan "The safety of health workers is a priority for patient safety", in combination with the World Patient Safety Day on September 17.

The aim of the sixth Qatari Patient Safety Week is to encourage the concept of patient safety at the national level, urge the community to participate in ensuring healthcare safety and raise awareness about the importance of the safety of health workers and the safety of the work environment to ensure patient safety through a more holistic approach.

The MoPH organizes several virtual awareness activities and events which focuses on:

- The transformation of the healthcare system in Qatar in the context of combating the COVID-19 pandemic threats.

- Managing risks and ensuring patient safety during crises.

- Infection control and limiting the spread of COVID-19.

- Strategies used to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on healthcare workers’ mental health.

The events and activities will include lectures and panel discussions by 22 local and international speakers, including 4 discussion panels on the most important developments in light of the COVID-19 pandemic with the participation of various health and educational institutions such as Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Primary Healthcare Corporation (PHCC), the Qatari Red Crescent, Sidra Medicine, Qatar University and several private hospitals.

Many landmarks in Qatar will lit up in orange as a symbolic gesture in recognition of the efforts made by health workers to provide safe healthcare services to patients daily, in addition to spreading awareness messages on social media platforms.
