We are pleased to announce that the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) has joined the Council for Heart Health as an Associate Member. The FIP is the global federation of national associations of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. Through its 151 member organisations, the FIP represents over four million practitioners and scientists around the world.
Founded in 1912, the FIP is a non-governmental organisation with its head office in the Netherlands. Through their partnerships and extensive pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences network, they work to support the development of the pharmacy profession, through practice and emerging scientific innovations, and through developing the pharmacy workforce in order to meet the world’s health care needs and expectations.
The vision for FIP is a world where everyone benefits from access to safe, effective, quality and affordable medicines and health technologies, as well as from pharmaceutical care services provided by pharmacists, in collaboration with other healthcare professionals. Their mission is to support global health by enabling the advancement of pharmaceutical practice, sciences and education.
The FIP sees a great opportunity in joining the Council for Heart Health for reinforcing the message that pharmacists are integral to managing and preventing CVD. More information can be found here:
