Pandemic preparedness, response and recovery: Lessons learnt for global pharmacy
Investing in science and innovation is one of six key areas of development needed to prepare for future pandemics, according to a new report conducted by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP): “Pandemic preparedness, response and recovery: Lessons learnt for global pharmacy”. The other five areas are: country leadership, system transformation, pharmaceutical practice, workforce and education, and life-course immunisation.
The report contains case studies from different countries and is supplemented by a digital resource collating further useful materials, including research, from the global health community and health professions. “This report seeks to outline the valuable lessons learned from the challenges posed by COVID-19, and aims to provide pharmacists worldwide with essential insights for enhancing future pandemic preparedness, response and delivery,” said FIP CEO Catherine Duggan.
