Every year, World Pharmacists Day is celebrated on September 25. This year, World Pharmacists Day will be celebrated on Monday.


In 2009, at World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Istanbul, Turkey, World Pharmacists Day was announced to be celebrated by The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) Council. The same day in 1912, The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) Council was established. Since then, World Pharmacists Day has been celebrated on September 25. " The FIP World Pharmacists Day campaign is an opportunity for pharmacy to celebrate its achievements in supporting societies, but also to make its value and further potential in improving health known," wrote The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) Council on their official website.


On this day, people are made aware of the significant role played by pharmacists in ensuring proper healthcare facilities to be provided to each and everyone. Their contribution to global health and their value in society is recognised and honoured on this special day. The best way to celebrate this day is by recognising the effort of the pharmacists and thanking them for doing what they are doing for us.
