World Patient Safety Day, celebrated annually on the 17th of September, was celebrated in an event organized by Uganda’s Ministry of Health and hosted by Mubende Regional Referral Hospital on the 14th of September, 2023. Situated 151km from Kampala, in Central Uganda, Mubende Regional Referral Hospital was chosen as the host due to its exceptional performance during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Ebola outbreak in 2023.
The notable participants included Uganda’s Ministry of Health, Mubende Regional Referral Hospital, National Drug Authority (NDA), Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), World Health Organization (WHO), Community Health and Information Network (CHAIN), Baylor College of Medicine Children's Foundation, and Saraya Manufacturing (U) Ltd. The event was graced by Dr. Charles Olaro, the Director of Curative Services at the Ministry of Health.

SARAYA Uganda actively participated in the event by setting up a stall to promote the patient safety campaign and showcase a range of products aimed at enhancing patient safety. T-shirts and caps were thoughtfully prepared and distributed to participants to raise awareness about the event's core concept.
The event organizers expressed their gratitude for SARAYA's significant involvement and for consistently delivering high-quality products. Furthermore, we are pleased to announce that we have received an invitation to attend the Patient Safety Day celebrations organized by one of our key partners, CHAIN, at Namulonge Health Centre III on the 28th of September, 2023.
