PFPS Malaysia has members who are healthcare professionals from various strands of healthcare, and who have also experienced adverse events in their own lives.

Collectively, we are driven by a desire to improve the existing system. Our emphasis is on engaging health professionals and organisations to enter into dialogue with patients and patient organisations, NOT to see them as an adversary, but as collaborators to help improve patient safety.

The launch of PFPSM was graced by the Honorable Minister of Health, Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam and its’ closing by the Director General, Y.Bhg. Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham Bin Abdullah

The PFPSM Declaration is a collective call and commitment to making patient safety a basic human right and the reduction of patient safety incidents a priority, to improve the quality of health care.

Patients for Patient Safety Malaysia (PFPSM), is a voluntary network which is patient led and will work closely with the Patient Safety Council Malaysia through the Malaysian Society for Quality in Health and the Ministry of Health, Malaysia to ensure the patient is considered in all aspects to improve safety in healthcare.
