FIP makes intervention at WHO for World Health Day 2011

Today marks the annual marking of World Health Day, with this year's main theme Antimicrobial resistance: no action today no cure tomorrow. FIP is pleased to announce that our CEO and General Secretary Mr A.J.M. Hoek has been invited to give an intervention at the World Health Organization (WHO) Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

In doing so, Mr Hoek and in turn FIP and the world's pharmacists are the only health profession making such an intervention, calling for attention and action from the world's pharmacists to do their part to educate the public and curb this rapidly spreading threat to public health.
