Special event on pandemic preparedness Pharmacy’s global responses to the COVID-19 pandemic

A webinar organised by:
27 October 2022

This special event is held during a week which marks two significant dates for global health. We will have passed the 1000 days since 30 January 2020 when the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak at the time as a Public Health Emergency. The same week will also mark the 4th anniversary since the world, including FIP, came together in Astana in 2018 to endorse the new Declaration of Astana emphasizing the critical role of primary health care. Join us on this special launch event on pandemic preparedness to learn about global pharmacy’s response to COVID-19 and discuss the important of resilient pharmacy and health systems.

Learning objectives:
1. Understand how FIP supported (and continues to support) its members during the pandemic
2. Describe how pharmacy leadership bodies responded to the pandemic across the world
3. Discuss country best practices and lessons for future pandemic preparedness
4. Learn about FIP’s map of primary health care, focusing on strengthening health systems and recovery
