Patient safety is a public health priority and a globally shared challenge, thus international cooperation is crucial. One of the most significant advances in this area to date is the recent adoption of the resolution "Global Action on Patient Safety" by the World Health Assembly, which enabled the first-ever World Patient Safety Day this past September. In recent years, the Global Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety has become one of the central platforms for improving patient safety worldwide. It represents an effective tool for facilitating collaboration between countries and stakeholders alike.
