Global Network of Pharmacists Against Tobacco

The Global Network of Pharmacists Against Tobacco, established by FIP is a global forum for pharmacists, pharmaceutical students and their professional organizations as well as other individuals or organizations interested in tobacco cessation and tobacco control activities.

The network was officially launched during the World Conference on Tobacco or Health 2003 in Helsinki, Finland. FIP is actively promoting the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control both directly and through its national member organizations.

This international network provides a good opportunity to explore other parts of the world, collect information and promote the role of the pharmacists as well as offer a possibility for pharmaceutical organisations and individual pharmacists to exchange their experiences of smoking cessation work in different practice settings.
