Decreasing the gaps in pharmaceutical science, practice and education between different regions of the world is among the aims of a new FIP strategy announced today by FIP president Dominique Jordan in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 79th World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences today, he said that the intended outcomes of this strategy include that everyone has access to medicines. The FIP president said: “the 21st century will be the century of pharmacists”.
He pointed out that pharmacists can play an active role in all 10 current threats to global health identified by the World Health Organization and that, by 2022, the profession should be able to prove that pharmacists are “important players in making a difference in a region or country”. Working together, we will have “huge opportunities”, he added.
79th FIP World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences opened today in the presence of H.E. Sheikh Abdulla Bin Mohamed Al Hamed, Chairman of Department of Health Abu Dhabi and would like to thank Department Of Health Abu Dhabi for their tremendous support.
