Organised by FIP’s Community Pharmacy Section, in collaboration with the Military and Emergency Pharmacy Section
(light breakfast at 07:00)
The role of pharmacists in humanitarian causes and natural disasters is continuing to evolve as organisers and policymakers understand the value that pharmacists bring to those various events. In some cases, pharmacists volunteer from a purely selfless internal motive to help; in other cases, there is an organised political requirement for pharmacy to be included in the medical team assigned to provide relief and support to some event. This session showcases how pharmacists have gone beyond their daily activities to offer humanitarian support.
