WORLD FAMILY DOCTOR DAY

On 19 May 2023, UEMO joins the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) in celebrating World Family Doctor Day. This day is an opportunity to highlight the role of this profession in the delivery of timely, personalized, efficient, and effective primary healthcare.

Given the importance of this profession, UEMO calls upon decision-makers today to ensure actions that will lead to improved career prospects and professional development. Never before the healthcare system has witnessed such a crisis in the recruitment and retention of this health professional category and action needs to be taken.

Family doctors play a pivotal role in promoting the health and well-being of individuals and communities. They are the first point of contact and trusted source of support for millions of patients and families and UEMO would like to celebrate all Family Doctors and express its gratitude for all their dedication, and relentless work.
