World Pharmacists Day
As designated by the FIP Council several years ago at the FIP Congress in Istanbul, 25 September marks the annual World Pharmacists Day. FIP encourages the world's pharmacists to use this day to organise activities that promote and advocate for the role of the pharmacist in improving health in every corner of the world.
Here is a guide for member organisations on how to prepare for World Pharmacists Day
World Pharmacists Day 2016
“Pharmacists: Caring for you” is the theme of this year’s World Pharmacists Day.
“This year’s theme was chosen to reflect the important role of pharmacists in providing care to the public, and also to highlight the emotional connection they have with their patients. The role of pharmacists has evolved from that of a provider of medicines to that of a provider of care. Pharmacists have a vital role in the outcome of pharmacological therapies and ultimately strive to improve patients’ quality of life,” said FIP President Dr Carmen Peña.
World Pharmacists Day, now in its sixth year, is used by FIP’s members around the globe to highlight the impact and added value of the pharmacy profession and its role in improving health to authorities, other professions and the media, as well as to the general public.
FIP has produced a number of resources in the six official United Nations languages which pharmacists and professional associations can use in support of World Pharmacists Day. These include a new look logo, official campaign images that feature real pharmacists, and materials for social media.
FIP is inviting individual pharmacists to support World Pharmacists Day by creating profile pictures for social media using an official FIP Twibbon or a specially designed “I care for you” placard, which can be printed and held in photographs. The resources are all free to use and available below.
