    The World Health Organization (WHO) announces that the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, Republic of Korea, has achieved maturity level four (ML4), the highest level in WHO’s classification of regulatory authorities for medical products. WHO has formally assessed the medical product regulatory authorities of 33 countries, of which only the Republic of Korea is listed as attaining this level in regulation for both locally produced as well as imported medicines and vaccines. This achievement represents an important milestone for the Republic of Korea and for the world, signifying that the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS), the national regulatory authority for medicines and vaccines, is operating at an advanced level of performance with continuous improvement Only about 30% of the world’s regulatory authorities have the capacity to ensure medicines, vaccines and other health products are produced to required standards, work as intended and do not harm patients. WHO’s benchmarking efforts identify regulatory authorities that are operating at an advanced level so that they can act as a reference point for regulatory authorities that lack the resources to perform all necessary regulatory functions, or which have not yet reached higher maturity levels for medical product oversight. “This is a great testament for Republic of Korea’s commitment for ensuring safe and effective medicines and vaccines, and investing in building a strong regulatory system,” said Dr Mariângela Simão, Assistant Director-General, Access to Medicines and Health Products. “We hope the achievement will be sustained and also help promote confidence, trust and further reliance on national authorities attaining this high level”.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the Government of Nepal have signed a new government-to-government agreement regarding the recruitment of Nepali health professionals to the UK. The move comes after the new health and social care secretary Steve Barclay announced plans to “significantly increase” overseas recruitment of health workers to help mitigate staff shortages in the UK. A 15-month pilot phase will initially see up to 100 nurses recruited from Nepal to work at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Read full story Source: Nursing Times (23 August 2022)

    Call to Action Patients, patient advocates, caregivers, pharmacists, healthcare workers, policymakers and industry experts are invited to take the pledge to support the statements to address patient safety across the globe. Patient advocates from throughout the Asia-Pacific region gathered under one umbrella on the 17 November 2021, to explore some of the nuances that must be addressed to ensure patient safety. These conversations culminated in five strategies which are aligned to WHO GPSAP 2021-2030 in Strategic Objective 4: Patient and Family Engagement, namely: Engage - Partner and engage patients, families and civil society organisations in co-development of policies, plans, strategies, programmes and guidelines to make health care safer. Learn - Learn from the experience of patients and families exposed to unsafe care to improve understanding of the nature of harm and foster the development of more effective solutions. Capacity Building - Build the capacity of patient advocates and champions in patient safety. Transparency - Establish the principle and practice of openness and transparency throughout health care, including through patient safety disclosure to patients (and families when permitted). Education & Empowerment - Provide information and education to patients and families for their involvement in self-care and empower them for shared decision-making in relation to patient safety. #UniteForPatientSafety Campaign You can also join the virtual course - Patient Safety: Understanding the Global Patient Safety Action Plan 2021-2030
