World Pharmacist Day 2021

The general perception of the public about the pharmacist is still that of a person who stands behind a counter, with a serious face, performing unseen tasks that result in delivery of a packet of medicines.
In reality, the practice of pharmacy today is one of the most important in the delivery of health services, and pharmacists are the health professionals who have the most detailed knowledge of drugs and how they work.

Pharmacists are often the first call for people to get advice on health in general, as well as specific clinical conditions. This is especially so in rural towns, where the health services may not match those in metropolitan areas. In these towns, where pharmacy practices have been established for many years, the pharmacist is trusted by other members of the community to offer professional advice.

The theme declared for World Pharmacist Day 2021 is "Pharmacy: Always Trusted for Your Health". The theme this year has been chosen to draw special attention to the trust in the health sector and the practice of pharmacy.
On the World Pharmacists Day held on 25 September, we must all endeavour to not only raise awareness of the role of the pharmacist in healthcare but also furthering that exact role through increased community involvement on national and local levels.

In this regard, to highlight the due importance of the day, a Ceremony was held to honour the Pharmacists at the Rawal Pharmacy. Commodore Azir Mumtaz (R), Director, and Chief Pharmacist Dr Rana Umar Shahzad, highlighted the importance of this sensitive and noble profession. The upcoming pharmacists were urged to pay added attention and provide exemplary services so that their profession gets the due focus and importance it rightfully deserves.
