Air pollution

The global threat of air pollution and its impact on patient care” programme

Air pollution needs to be addressed urgently and not only as an environmental and ecological threat, but also as a direct threat to health. Health systems and health care professionals are called upon to address and mitigate the impact of air pollution on people’s health and quality of life. In particular, there is an evolving role for community pharmacists, not only in reactive respiratory illness, but also in supporting proactive individual and community respiratory wellness. Community pharmacists are key to managing respiratory care and activating practical change amongst patients in their communities. FIP will be organising a series of events in partnership with The Clean Breathing Institute.
