The World Pharmacists Day is observed each year on 25 September. The World Pharmacists Day is an opportunity to communicate how, together, pharmacists are transforming health through a variety of health services in their communities, including advising on healthy living, vaccinating to prevent disease, and ensuring that medicines are taken correctly.
“Pharmacy united in action for a healthier world”
This World Pharmacists Day 2022 resource gives some examples of the invaluable actions of the pharmacy profession towards SdGs targets.
This year’s theme aims to showcase pharmacy’s positive impact on health around the world and to further strengthen solidarity among the profession.We invite colleagues from all sectors of the pharmacy profession to take part in the campaign and show the world how we are united for health, regardless of and overcoming conflict, different politics and cultures, and economic disparity.
Why we must stay united in action
- There are many improvements to health and wellbeing of which the pharmacy profession can be proud. Nevertheless, we all now face the task of restoring essential health services that have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic when more people have been unable to get health check-ups, vaccinations and even urgent care. Decades of improvements in health outcomes are under threat of reversal.
- If universal health coverage is to become a reality by 2030, growth in the provision and use of essential health services must greatly accelerate. Pharmacy — through its many sectors and areas of expertise — is vital to this vision!
