The Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana would join pharmacists around the world to mark the World Pharmacists Day, which falls on Thursday, September 25.

The celebration, on the theme: "Access to Pharmacists is Access to Health," is being marked at Amasaman in Ga West Municipality.

Some of the activities planned for the day include health education on Ebola and cholera, mass deworming of school children at Amasaman cluster of schools and mini-exhibition by some pharmaceutical companies.

This was in a statement signed by James Ohemeng Kyei, President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Wednesday.

“To have access is to have the opportunity or right to see a person, or use a service or a facility for its intended purpose, hence having access to a Pharmacist is to have the opportunity to interact, benefit or use the services of the Pharmacist,” he said.

The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), which is the global federation of the 127 member country associations of pharmacists, introduced the Day to educate the public on the useful and varied roles of the pharmacist in healthcare delivery all over the world.

The decision to annually celebrate the World Pharmacists Day was taken at the FIP Council meeting in Istanbul, Turkey, during the 2009 FIP Congress.

The statement said the World Pharmacists Day has, thus, been celebrated since 2010.

In Ghana, this is the second time of celebrating the event.
