3rd Geneva Conference on Person-Centered Medicine

WSMI attended the 3rd Geneva Conference on Person-centered medicine which took place in Geneva from May 3-5, 2010. The Third Geneva Conference on Person-Centered Medicine followed the inaugural Geneva Conference of May 2008 and the second Geneva Conference of May 2009 as landmarks in a process of building an initiative on “Medicine for the Person” through the collaboration of major global medical and health organizations and a growing group of committed international experts. WSMI was particularly interested in the symposium on person-centered medicine and primary health care organized by WHO. Also of particular interest to WSMI was a presentation from Malaysia which outlined that the government has incorporated principles of people-centered care into numerous national policies and strategies. The “person-centric” policies included a focus on wellness, empowerment of individuals, families and communities, as well as integrated services throughout the life course.
