FIP presence at the 2nd Global Forum for Human Resources for Health

From the 25th to 29th of January, FIP has been sharing its work and experience on pharmaceutical sector human resources and pharmacy education with a global audience working in Human Resources for Health (HRH).

At this event, FIP held a meeting to present the activities and outcomes achieved since its joint commitment to the Pharmacy Education Taskforce Action Plan in collaboration with WHO and UNESCO. The 2009 Global Pharmacy Workforce report findings and outcomes of the work undertaken with WHO in supporting countries to assess and develop pharmaceutical sector human resource plans were also a great focus of attention. In addition the Pharmacy Support Workforce Domain was launched by the FIP Pharmacy Education Taskforce which aims to build evidence and tools to inform the needs-based education of the pharmacy support workforce.

A case study on implementing quality assurance in India and the FIP global quality assurance framework in pharmacy education was selected by the organisers to be presented at the event exhibition. Only 36 case studies were selected from over 200 entries, which exemplifies the value and interest in the work being undertaken by FIP and its members in the area of pharmacy education.

The 2nd Global Forum for HRH is organised every 2 years by the WHO hosted Global Health Workforce Alliance. This prestigious event brings together leaders from global, regional, national donor and implementation organisations and ministries of health and human resources to share experience and network with all who are taking action to improve human resources for health.
