Theme for World Pharmacists Day announced

19 Dec 2014


“Pharmacists: your partners in health” is to be the theme for next year’s World Pharmacists Day.

Announced by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), the day will be held on September 25th 2015.

This will be the fifth World Pharmacists Day and FIP will use the opportunity to highlight the value of the community pharmacy and its role in improving healthcare to a wider audience.

FIP president, Dr Carmen Peña, said: “The theme was chosen to stress the confidence and close collaboration that pharmacists have with patients and other healthcare professionals.

“It will emphasise to policy-makers the concept of pharmacists being providers of solutions to governments through their services; a key tactical approach in FIP’s vision.”

CEO of FIP, Luc Besançon, said: “Every day three million pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists around the world act as partners to patients, other healthcare professionals and other scientists.”
