World Family Doctor Day
« Back to Events List Page
Join us in celebrating World Family Doctor Day (FDD) on Saturday, May 19. FDD was first declared by WONCA in 2010 and it has become a day to highlight the role and contribution of family doctors in health care systems around the world. The event has gained momentum globally each year and it is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the central role of our specialty in the delivery of personal, comprehensive and continuing health care for all of our patients. It's also a chance to celebrate the progress being made in family medicine and the special contributions of family doctors all around the world. Each year, WONCA focuses on a theme. This year's theme is: Family doctors – leading the way to better health. You are invited to submit case examples of best practices that lead to better health – click here. The case examples will be forwarded to WONCA President, Professor Amanda Howe. And many will be featured in future editions of WONCA News.
