Minor ailment service explained by animation

Benefits of seeking treatment for minor ailments from community pharmacies are communicated in an animation (http://ow.ly/NOnaZ ) released by the UK’s Royal Pharmaceutical Society. It explains how patients can visit pharmacies that have been commissioned to provide the NHS minor ailment service for conditions, such as eczema, indigestion, hay fever and “upset stomach”, avoiding GP surgeries and accident & emergency departments. The video was developed for the Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group, which is rolling out a minor ailment service across local community pharmacies.

Progress on vaccine plan has been patchy, experts warn

The 68th World Health Assembly, has resolved to improve access to sustainable supplies of affordable vaccines — a key issue for low- and middle-income countries. A report from WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization warns, however, that progress towards the action plan’s targets has been slow and patchy. FIP made a statement, on behalf of pharmacists, on the Global Vaccine Action Plan at WHA68. We emphasised that opportunities to vaccinate are being missed and outlined the growing evidence that vaccination by pharmacists is among the solutions.

Countries should have AMR plans in place by May 2017

A global action plan to tackle antimicrobial resistance, including antibiotic resistance, was agreed by the World Health Assembly in Geneva this week. It sets out 5 objectives. Through adoption of the global plan, governments all committed to have in place, by May 2017, a national action plan on antimicrobial resistance that is aligned with the global action plan. National plans need to cover the use of antimicrobial medicines in animals and agriculture, as well as for humans.
We hope that pharmacists are closely involved with plans in every country!
FIP represented pharmacists at WHA68, and antimicrobial resistance was among the topics we made statements on. http://ow.ly/Nr6Lw

Growing focus on human resources for health

Calls for strengthening the health workforce are growing, according to the Global Health Workforce Alliance. At the 68th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland (18–26 May), it was revealed that a review of the WHA resolutions made between 2000 and 2014 found that many of the 374 resolutions on technical themes generated by WHO member states contained calls for the development of human resources for health policy, data/information, and education/training of individual health personnel for skills enhancement. FIP was among the co-organisers of a WHA side event on the health workforce implications of WHO resolutions, in order to discuss this important issue further, and made several formal statements at the assembly.

Biowaivering in Buenos Aires

Biowaivers and their implementation are being discussed today and tomorrow at a workshop co-organised by FIP in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Biowaiver is an agreed use of in vitro assessments that permits the need for in vivo (bio) studies of a drug to be avoided, shortening the time needed to gain to marketing authorisations and so improving access to medicines.
