THE International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) has signed a new memorandum of understanding with the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association (CPA), defining how both organisations will cooperate to “advance health for the public benefit by developing the pharmacy profession”.
The MoU continues ongoing joint activities including advancing the pharmaceutical workforce agenda.
“2018 has provided important opportunities for the CPA’s advocacy efforts for the profession around both the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting,” according to CPA ceo Victoria Rutter.
“This year our voice was significantly louder due to the support in these efforts offered by FIP…the impact we have made together is significant,” she said.
A key achievement was a recommendation to invest in the pharmacy workforce presented to Commonwealth health ministers.
