FIP’s commitment to leveraging pharmacists to build confidence and address vaccine hesitancy has been endorsed by 20 organisations, the federation announced today. These organisations are: the Active Citizenship Network (Cittadinanzattiva), the Association of Pharmacists from Portuguese-Speaking Countries (AFPLP), the International Conference of French-Speaking Orders of Pharmacists (CIOPF), the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association, the European Interdisciplinary Council on Ageing, the European Society of Clinical Pharmacy,, the Influenza Diabetes Community/European Scientific Working Group on Influenza, the International Diabetes Federation, the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations, the International Federation on Ageing, the International Longevity Centre, the International Primary Care Respiratory Group, the International Society of Oncology Pharmacy Practitioners, the Meningitis Research Foundation/Confederation of Meningitis Organisations, Shot@Life (UN Foundation), Vaccines Today, the World Dental Federation (FDI) and the World Federation of Public Health Associations. Vaccine hesitancy is a major threat to global health and an important barrier to the success of vaccination strategies worldwide. Barriers such as misinformation and distrust in vaccines can compromise not only the health of individuals but also public health as a whole. “We thank this wide range of stakeholders for their public confidence in the value of pharmacists and in the role of FIP in advocating the widespread utilisation of pharmacists on this important issue,” said Gonçalo Sousa Pinto, FIP lead for practice development and transformation. The commitment was made earlier this year.
