Mark your calendars for World Pharmacist Day on Sept. 25. The theme, “Pharmacy united in action for a healthier world,” aims to present the industry’s impact on global health and connect pharmacists worldwide. Read on to learn how you can show gratitude to pharmacists everywhere this World Pharmacist Day.
What Is World Pharmacist Day?
World Pharmacist Day is a campaign created by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), an international organization representing pharmaceutical education and science. The FIP started World Pharmacist Day in 2009, creating an opportunity to promote pharmacists and their role in health worldwide. It honors these medical professionals, drawing attention to the advantages of the health they provide.
Why Are We Celebrating Pharmacists?
In every corner of the world, pharmacists are creating a healthier society. They are the reason people get the best outcomes from medications. Pharmacists make the world better by using their knowledge, expertise, and reach. As accessible and quick-to-respond healthcare professionals, pharmacists are prepared to assist and answer any questions or concerns.
So it’s no surprise there’s a day for celebrating them. World Pharmacist Day, filled with events and activities, reminds and motivates people to understand the importance of pharmacists everywhere.
What Does World Pharmacist Day’s 2022 Theme Really Mean?
The theme changes yearly, but the date remains constant. The FID chose Sept. 25 because it was the day the organization started in 1912. Each year, there’s a new theme, giving those within the pharmaceutical industry a chance to highlight the outstanding efforts to improve health worldwide.
This year’s theme, “United in action for a healthier world,” sheds light on how the world joins forces for health, despite conflicts or differences. The world is in the process of restoring vital health services rattled by COVID-19. This is no small feat, so pharmaceutical professionals must join forces to create a healthy planet.
How to Show Your Appreciation
The goal of World Pharmacist Day is to raise awareness of pharmacists and their role in helping the world. Here are ways you can join the celebration:
- Thank pharmacists for everything they do for you and your community.
- Support local pharmacies by purchasing medicines and other items as much as possible.
