The Problem

Medical Errors

Claim the Lives of 3+ Million Patients Every Year

Globally it is believed that medical errors kill more people than HIV, Malaria, and Tuberculosis, combined. COVID-19 exposed all the deficiencies in healthcare that already existed and placed patients and health workers at greater risk for preventable harm.


The Vision

ZERO Preventable Harm and Death

ZERO is not just a number – it’s our mission

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation believes reaching ZERO preventable patient harm and deaths across the globe by 2030 is not only the right goal, but an attainable one with the right people, ideas, and technology.


Launching a Patient Safety Moonshot™

To be human is to seek audacious goals.
Together we’ve reached places once thought unreachable.
We’ve cured diseases once called incurable and achieved what seemed unachievable.
Yet, three million people around the world die every year due to unsafe care.

The time has come to prevent the preventable.

We are calling for a Patient Safety Moonshot™ and have our goal set to achieve ZERO.
