The World Pharmacy Council met in Paris 19-22 May 2022 for its annual conference. The theme of the meeting was Transforming Patient Care through Community Pharmacy. Welcoming delegates to the meeting the President, Doug Hoey (National Community Pharmacy Association, USA), said: “This is a very opportune time to be meeting together. We recognised early in the pandemic that community pharmacy would have a vital contribution to make to deliver care to our patients as physicians and hospitals closed clinics, and in our communications we have exchanged information about the wide range of newly authorised pharmacy services, research, and public recognition of pharmacies, summarised in the 2020 and 2021 Sector Analyses, WhatsApp and Capsule publications. “Our challenge now is to ensure that we build on the public appreciation and the success of the new services provided during the pandemic to secure the new and expanded services for the future, with the funding needed to deliver viable income streams.”
Delegates discussed the highlights from their own country experiences since the last conference in August 2019. Common to all was the growth in demand for community pharmacy to provide a range of primary health care and public health services during the COVID-19 pandemic, including in periods when most other care providers stopped seeing patients in person.
