At a time of great uncertainty and emergency, the pharmacy profession has demonstrated its expertise, strength, courage and dedication to care to the highest level, said Dominique Jordan, FIP president, at the opening ceremony of FIP Virtual 2020 today.
Thanking the pharmacy profession around the world for its efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr Jordan said that he had never been so proud to be a pharmacist as in the past seven months. He added that the pandemic had emphasised the power of sharing and solidarity, and that acting as “one pharmacy”, he was confident that the profession will emerge from the pandemic “bigger and better”. However, the profession must now think ahead and complement the positive recognition it had received with evidence that can be used for discussions with governments after the crisis to enhance pharmacy practice, Mr Jordan said.
