Introduction

The role of pharmacists in improving the general health of the public is developing rapidly. Today, not only is the profession a trusted link between patients and their doctors, but pharmacists also play the role of an educator as well as a reliable source of information and advice to the community.

 

Objectives

  • Empower members of the public with appropriate information to be better informed about their own health management.
  • Establish pharmacists’ role in public health promotion including promotion of health awareness and well-being, disease prevention and identification of ill health.
  • Promote and encourage the public to practice safe and effective self-care in the area of self-medication for minor ailments and playing an active role in the management of chronic diseases.
  • Organize events and other nation-wide pharmacy campaigns to promote the above goals.
