Award for best national pharmacy health campaign goes to Brazil
FIP’s 2019 Health Promotion Campaign Award went to the Brazilian Federal Council of Pharmacy (CFF) in recognition of its work with Brazil’s biggest media network to communicate the value of pharmacists. The CFF worked to ensure that pharmacists and pharmacy students were able to take full advantage of an invitation from the network to take part in its Global Well-Being Project, which comprised nine events in cities across Brazil and was watched by 9.7 million people.
During the events, 1,450 people had their blood pressure measured, 796 had their cholesterol measured, 1,447 had capillary glycaemia measurements, 397 had their pulmonary capacity measured, and 153 women were for cervical cancer ― all by pharmacists.
