About Program:

Indian healthcare sector is growing at nearly 16.5 percent CAGR since 2008. The sector over the years has shown great progress on several health indicators like life expectancy and maternal/child mortality. The significant progress made by the healthcare system in India is attributed to the combined efforts of the public and private sector.

Healthcare is a fundamental right under Article 21 of the Constitution. In spite of its impressive growth, healthcare system faces triple challenge of raising  service quality, providing equitable access and dual disease burden. With the rising public expectations and awareness, the demand for patient safety and quality of care is increasing. In-spite of so many initiatives the patient safety implementation has remained fragmented. Challenges in patient safety in India are varied in nature, ranging from unsafe injections and biological waste management to medication and medical device safety, high rates of healthcare associated infections, anti-microbial resistance etc.

The recent launch of National Patient Safety Implementation framework (2018-2025) by the Ministry of Health & FW, GOI aims at ensuring implementation of patient safety initiatives in a coordinated and comprehensive manner and thereby achieving of the national patient safety goals. AHPI, has developed a training module on framework patient safety based upon this NPSI Framework document. Training shall be imparted through mix of lectures, exercises and practical  demonstration. The program shall also synergies with implementation of Ayushman Bharat Yojana (PMJAY) and help in promoting ‘Safe Universal Health  Coverage’.
