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.
