The Federal Ministry of Health is present at the Berlin TV tower on World Patient Safety Day: On September 17th, the TV tower will shine in orange for one night. The federal government is thus participating in the global WHO initiative for patient safety. Hundreds of campaigns are taking place across Germany.
“Speak up for health worker safety – make yourself strong for the safety of health workers” is this year’s WHO motto. The orange illuminated television tower therefore also expresses special thanks to those who work every day for their health. Your daily commitment makes a significant contribution to coping with the COVID 19 pandemic in Germany. Everyone can support health workers in their work by effectively protecting themselves and others. This works best with AHA: distance + hygiene + everyday mask. With the AHA formula, everyone can help ensure that the health system remains safe for both patients and staff.
