FIP is launching a programme of 12 digital events covering different challenges and opportunities for professional services in the area of communicable diseases. A series of five episodes will focus on the role of pharmacists in addressing vaccine hesitancy and building and sustaining vaccine confidence in the public. The regional burden of vector-borne diseases and priorities for action by pharmacists will be explored in a 6-part series of digital events. Towards the end of the year, the FIP Communicable Diseases programme will also include the launch of a new toolkit to support pharmaceutical care and services for people living with HIV.
