Globally, we will have:

A patient-centred and integrated health services foundation for workforce development, relevant to social determinants of health and needs-based approaches to workforce development.


  • Systematic development of education and training activities based on local healthcare systems, their capacity and funding.

  • Evidence of systematic development policies and strategies for the strengthening and transforming pharmaceutical workforce education and the systematic training of trainers and educators.

  • Education providers must ensure, by the provision of evidence-based approaches, that lecturers, teachers and trainers are themselves appropriately trained for capability and competency.

  • Enable the pharmaceutical workforce and key stakeholders to promote health equity through actions related to social determinants of health.
