World Family Doctor Day 2019
World Family Doctor Day (WFDD) – 19th May – was first declared by the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) in 2010 to highlight the role and contribution of family doctors in health care systems around the world. The theme of this year is “Family doctors – caring for you for the whole of your life”.
Family doctors take care of the health of you and your family, and understand your needs at different stages of life. They provide you the most appropriate preventive care and health advice, helping you to prevent and control diseases.
