FIP moves primary health care agenda in the European Region forward with new report

Needs in the European Region in order for pharmacy to deliver breakthroughs for better primary health care are described in a new report released by FIP today.

 The report summarises the key messages from a conference for the European Region, held by FIP in collaboration the Turkish Pharmacists’ Association in 2019, which facilitated mapping and prioritisation of pharmaceutical practice, service, education and workforce development needs in the context of primary health care. At that conference, pharmacy leaders and pharmacists representing 37 countries in the region committed to deliver better primary health care through pharmacy, and the report presents findings of a survey of FIP member organisations conducted between June and September 2020 to evaluate national pharmacy priorities and strategies towards the implementation of that commitment (n=16).

“With this report, we have assessed the status quo and suggest next steps in to take the primary health care agenda forward. This will support pharmacy leaders in Europe and beyond as a roadmap for action to transform primary health care,” said FIP CEO Dr Catherine Duggan.
