World Family Doctor Day- May 19- Messages from Executive

May, 2020

World Family Doctor Day (FDD) – 19th May - 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 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 globally.

In celebration of this year’s FDD – which acknowledges and applauds the work of family doctors globally, we rather presciently chose the theme of “Family doctors on the front line: first in, last out”. You can access a video message from our President, Dr Donald Li, and the entire WONCA Executive, below.
