This proposal was unanimously accepted by the Council and since 2010, World Pharmacists Day has been coordinated by FIP and celebrated through the involvement of its Member Organisations, either with structured, widespread campaigns or small scale projects. Each year welcomes a new theme to developed to showcase the pharmacist in their positive affect on health.
