Update Regarding FIP Centennial Top 100 Pharmacists
Dear FIP Member Organisations,
It is our regrettable task to inform you that the Top 100 Pharmacists project has been put on hold and the Top 100 Pharmacists list will not be released at the FIP Centennial Congress.
This has been a difficult decision for FIP, one that is reflective of internal challenges that FIP is currently facing, and which by no means is a result of the quality of the nominations received, or of those who nominated them. Through this initiative we have come to be reminded of the wonderful work that has been – and continues to be – done by pharmacists globally, and we commend each and every nominee for their on-going efforts in upholding and advancing the profession of pharmacy throughout the world.
Again, on behalf of FIP and our officers, many apologies for this unfortunate turn of events. We will be in touch in the future should we recommence the nomination process and will keep all nominated individuals on file for future consideration. We greatly value the work invested to date in the nomination process and are dedicated to acknowledging all involved.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact FIP Headquarters at [email protected].
Thank you greatly for your understanding.
