World Family Doctor Day – 19th May – was first declared by WONCA in 2010 and it has become a day to highlight the role and contribution of family doctors in health care systems around the world. This year we especially want to highlight the role of family doctors in providing life- long care to their patients – “Family doctors – caring for you for the whole of your life”. We especially want to emphasise that family doctors have a key role in the management of children and also their pivotal role in palliative and end of life care. As before, WONCA has made generic FDD posters available via the WONCA website, and the FDD logo is also available.
