From the Desk of the Chairman September 2019
September has been dedicated as pharmacy month.
The department of Health, in collaboration with the SAPC, PSSA and ICPA, has come up with a theme for 2019 and it was decided that we will focus on Mental Health.
What we are saying to the public is that mental illness can be treated and that the public can ask their pharmacist for advice. We will, on a weekly basis, send out snippets on this topic and request that you participate in educating the public on signs and symptoms and various solutions that are at their disposal.
We further request that you send pictures of pharmacy month activities in your work environment so that we publicise them on our social media platforms.
Wishing you fun filled pharmacy month.
Chairman, PSSA Pretoria branch
