Join the US Commercial Service for the 2018 International Patient Day Programs!

If you are a US medical device or health IT exporter, consider participating in the 2018 International Patient Day (IPD) program. During the 2018 IPD, your company can illustrate to foreign regulators, procurement contacts and other high-level officials the personal impact your technology has on their local population.

After a successful first year of IPD programs, we are launched our second year of IPDs in even more countries to promote US medical technologies worldwide. Learn more about the successful 2017 series here.

What is International Patient Day?

The goal of an International Patient Day is for foreign government regulators, procurement contacts, and other high-level officials to see the personal impact U.S. medical technology has on their local population. International Patient Day seeks to build the human connection through sharing personal stories of how U.S. technology is improving lives in their country. Anticipated outcomes include increased dialogue between US medical technology companies and foreign regulators on critical issues.

The 2018 International Patient Day will include individual country programs across the globe. Each program will feature three or more US medical technologies and personal stories of how local doctors and patients have benefited from using these technologies.
