A new report to showcase the impact of young pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists on global health has been published today by the Young Pharmacists Group of FIP.
The publication, entitled “Role of early-career pharmaceutical groups in global health”, aims to highlight how youth engagement can contribute to the achievement of the FIP Development Goals and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The report presents the results of a survey on the involvement of individual and early-career pharmaceutical group initiatives together with case studies from early-career pharmaceutical groups in Indonesia, Lebanon, Nigeria, Malaysia and Portugal on emergency, advocacy and COVID-19 response.
“We hope this report will inspire individuals to create their own early-career groups in their countries or regions and we also hope that other groups learn from this report and be influenced to develop their initiatives and share their outcomes and knowledge,” FIP President Dominique Jordan says in the foreword.
The YPG is a network of motivated young pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists within FIP with the objectives of facilitating connections and networking so that new ideas can be shared, and doors to information and new possibilities are opened. Membership is open to individuals under 35 years of age or who have graduated from their first degree in pharmacy or pharmaceutical science within the past five years. Find out more here.
