Building on its successful Regional Conference for the Eastern Mediterranean Region in April, the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) is continuing to implement the World Health Organization Declaration of Astana on primary health care, with the ultimate goal of achieving universal health coverage.

In October, we will be taking this agenda into the European Region.

FIP and the Turkish Pharmacists’ Association will gather key pharmacy stakeholders, leaders and partners from Europe and beyond in Ankara, Turkey ― where pharmacy began with Galen and Dioscorides centuries ago. Together we will embark on the journey towards healthier populations through stronger primary health care with advanced pharmaceutical services, leaving no one behind.

In the land of our profession’s forefathers, together we will take the next leap forward by building on our strong foundations, guided by new scientific developments. We will share our experiences in order to optimise future pharmacy and position pharmacists as one of the most effective providers of primary health care.

The conference, “Delivering primary health care: Pharmacists taking the next leap forward”, will be held from 23 to 25 October 2019. Save the date to join us and be part of leading and co-creating the transformation of pharmacy.
