This is the 16th international conference convoked by the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers.

“Whose power?” asked the secretary of the council, Bishop José Redrado, when announcing the initiative on Vatican Radio. “There is the power of the economy, the power of people who work in health; the power of the doctor; the power of the nurse, the power of the structure, etc. This is the reality on which we wish to reflect.”

Bishop Redrado said the conference would be on the side of patients.
