This year the campaign’s aims are to showcase pharmacy’s positive impact on health around the world and to further strengthen solidarity among the profession.“The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 3 sets out a number of health targets, including for non-communicable diseases ... and communicable diseases. We have seen improvements in many of these areas and our profession should be proud of and make known its contributions,” said FIP president Mr Dominique Jordan.However, he added that “the COVID-19 pandemic has hindered progress and it is imperative that we rally to build back better”.FIP is encouraging all sectors of the profession to use World Pharmacists Day and World Pharmacy Week (which will run from September 19-25) to share how their actions have resulted in better health, communicating the value of pharmacy.“The core duty of every pharmacist is to apply the full measure of their knowledge and abilities to support health and wellbeing. I invite all colleagues to take part in the campaign this year and show the world how our profession is united for health, regardless of and overcoming conflict, different politics and cultures, and economic disparity,” Mr Jordan said.
