Introduction

On 19th May 2010, World Family Doctor Day (WFDD) was officially launched and declared during the opening session of the WONCA World Conference in Mexico. It is a special day which was celebrated internationally every year to recognize the role and contribution of family doctors in the healthcare systems around the world. It is a unique day of the year, where we remind ourselves and the rest of the world that our work deserves recognition and celebration. Family doctors are the backbone of the healthcare system. They play a pivotal role in the delivery of personal, comprehensive and continuing care for the people in our local community, nation and worldwide.

World Family Doctor Day also provides the opportunity to commemorate the role of the family doctor with their families, their patients and their other colleagues in family medicine, general practice or primary care. It is a chance to celebrate the progress being made in family medicine and the special contributions of family doctors globally. It helps to share and to showcase the value of family doctors and family medicine. It is our hope that it will help to increase the morale, as well as the spirit of the family doctors to continue contributing and supporting in the healthcare system.
