Global Immunization

The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) and the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) partnered to conduct a two-part program in Abu Dhabi during September 2019 that included pharmacist educational programming and an expert panel discussion and roundtable on pharmacy-based immunizations. The program’s purpose was to foster the global expansion of pharmacy-based immunization practice by equipping participants with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to establish a successful immunization practice. The program had a special emphasis on approaches to improving immunization rates in high-risk populations.
