FIP Global Summit on Primary Health Care: Pharmacists transforming vision into actions

25 October 2021

On 25 October 2021, it will be the third anniversary of the World Health Organization’s Astana Declaration on Primary Health Care (PHC), for which FIP pledged its commitment to accelerate progress in strengthening PHC. In 2020, the WHO published its Operational Framework for PHC to translate the vision of the Astana Declaration into actions. To mark this date and showcase how pharmacists can utilise and contribute to the WHO operational framework, FIP is organizing the digital FIP Global Summit on Primary Health Care. The summit will host a high-level discussion with the WHO to explore the strategic levers needed for pharmacists to strengthen primary health care.

At the end of this session, participants will:

1. Learn about WHO’s operational framework on primary health care to translate vision into actions
2. Explore initiatives from FIP member organizations on primary health care
3. Engage in a high-level discussion on strategic priorities needed for pharmacists to strengthen primary health care
