Without access to and appropriate use of quality medicines, health systems lose their ability to meet health care needs. The pharmacy workforce crisis threatens the ability of many countries to deliver pharmaceutical health services. The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) has sought to address this crisis by gathering global data on the pharmacy workforce and developing evidence-based background papers to serve as an advocacy tool at country, regional and global levels.
The 2012 FIP Global Pharmacy Workforce Report is the third pharmacy workforce report to be published by FIP. It was launched at the FIP Centennial Congress in Amsterdam in a joint session with WHO.
