Today, we recognise a group of professionals who often work behind the scenes, yet play an indispensable role in ensuring our well-being. Today, we celebrate the dedication, expertise, and invaluable contributions of pharmacists and pharmacy educators to healthcare.

The 2023 theme, "Pharmacy Strengthening Health Systems," underscores the integral role pharmacists and pharmacy educators play in enhancing and fortifying healthcare systems worldwide. This theme emphasises the multifaceted contributions of both groups in supporting the overall health infrastructure and ensuring that healthcare delivery is efficient, safe, and consumer-centered.

Our CEO Bronwyn Clark's sentiment encapsulates the significance of pharmacists and pharmacy educators in our health care system.

"Everywhere there's a medicine, there should be a pharmacist, and medicines are the most commonly used invention in healthcare."

This perspective highlights the important part we play in shaping the future of healthcare and pharmacy.

Pharmacy educators are instrumental in ensuring that our future pharmacists are well-prepared to meet the evolving needs of healthcare. They are the architects of the pharmacists of tomorrow, imparting knowledge, instilling values, and nurturing the passion that will shape the next generation of healthcare professionals.
