FIP-EquityRx: Pharmacy leaving no one behind…

In 2018, FIP-EquityRx became the overarching label and unifying theme for FIP’s initiatives and work on gender and diversity. These initiatives focused on empowering women both within and beyond the workforce through promoting equity in the pharmacy workforce, championing women in science and academia and empowering women as informal caregivers.

In 2019, FIP announced the expansion of the scope of its equity & equality programme to beyond gender & diversity balances — extending to equity in access to care and all that this encompasses.

Since the launch of FIP Development Goal 10: Equity & Equality in 2020, this scope expansion became an even stronger imperative to support the equitable access to health care for all individuals, regardless of the following social, demographic and health identifiers & their intersectionality:
Age
Disease & comorbidities
Gender
Literacy & access to education
Mental & physical ability
Race & ethnicity
Religious beliefs
Sexual orientation
Socioeconomic status & class
