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 and primary care teams in healthcare systems around the world.
This celebration is the perfect opportunity to acknowledge the central role of Family Doctors in the delivery of personal, comprehensive and continuing health care for all patients. It’s also a chance to celebrate the progress being made in family medicine and the special contributions of primary care teams globally.
We are now thrilled to announce this year’s theme: Building the Future with Family Doctors!
Our 2021 theme, aligned with the Year of the Health and Care Workers 2021 declared by the World Health Organization (WHO), is based on four fundamental pillars with key elements to move forward and overcome the challenges towards a better future.
