FIP has led and is still leading the way for hundreds of thousands of pharmacists worldwide through the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, as we are all aware, every country has approached their challenges differently and healthcare providers have had to manage adequately, pharmacists included. Can we learn from each other’s experiences?

This session is dedicated to sharing and comparing the experiences of pharmacists at the front line in three different countries: Spain, New Zealand and the USA. Each of these countries had a different approach to tackling the challenges of the pandemic and it will be immensely enlightening to hear their stories.

This will be a session in which we will welcome distinguished speakers who will give us their unique pharmacy-related perspectives from each of their countries. We look forward to sharing with you!
