Dominique Jordan, who took office as Federation Internationale Pharmaceutique (FIP) President said, “Pharmacists use their broad knowledge and unique expertise to ensure that people get the best from their medicines. We ensure access to medicines and their appropriate use, improve adherence, and coordinate care transitions and so much more.”
