Empowering pharmacists to support tobacco cessation in Western Pacific Region

25 June 2024

In the Western Pacific Region, 22.5 % of people aged 15 years and over were current tobacco users. Given the global and regional prevalence and burden of tobacco use, particularly as a risk factor for noncommunicable diseases, it is important that the role of pharmacists in this area is expanded and consolidated. FIP and the Western Pacific Pharmaceutical Forum invite you to join this event to learn more about the burden of tobacco use in the Western Pacific region and the role that pharmacists can play in tobacco cessation. The event will include insights from the WHO Regional Office, country examples of pharmacist services and the presentation of FIP resources to advance tobacco cessation through pharmacists.
