Regina Mariam Namata Kamoga, Executive Director of CHAIN, will attend the 4th Global Ministerial Patient Summit in Jeddi, Saudi Arabia, March 2-3, 2019, under the theme: Universal Health Coverage & Patient Safety.

The global event will bring together health ministers from more than 50 countries, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) and patient safety experts.
During this event, efforts will be put together to define strategies that will support the integration of patient safety as an essential element in achieving universal health coverage. This will be met by raising awareness and fostering contextual applicability, particularly in resource limited settings and therefore it is anticipated to be a more robust participation from low and middle-income countries (LMIC).
