‘How can digital health support national pharmaceutical care delivery?’ A regional and global assessment of priorities and challenges in the African region

A webinar organised by:
8 June 2022

Substandard and falsified medicines, along with a lack of adherence to medication regimens, pose a threat to public health worldwide. It is possible to deliver pharmaceutical care services that address these challenges using digital healthcare techniques and approaches. Globally, digital health faces many challenges and concerns, despite its potential to impact pharmaceutical care.

FIP and the Global Pharmaceutical Observatory are launching a new needs assessment programme entitled "How can digital health support national pharmaceutical care delivery? A regional and global assessment of priorities and challenges", with an emphasis on medication adherence and fighting SF medicines.

This regional and global needs assessment programme will include a series of six regional events, culminating in a private global roundtable and a summary report.

In this regional event we will facilitate a regional discussion about ongoing digital health interventions or solutions that detect, report, and act against false or substandard medicines, and how to facilitate patient adherence, as well as the challenges leadership bodies and nations face in implementing digital health solutions in pharmaceutical care delivery in Africa.
