GPRA’s i heart my GP campaign was launched on 19 May 2012, on World Family Doctor Day. World Family Doctor Day is an annual global event that provides an opportunity to celebrate the importance of the Family Doctor/GP and their role in supporting health care for all communities.
The concept of a World Family Doctor Day was originally coined by GPRA’s student arm – General Practice Students Network (GPSN). GPSN took the idea to Wonca – the global organisation for family doctors, who officially launched World Family Doctor Day on May 19 2010.
