It was the morning of Tuesday, March 31, 2020, I woke up to prepare for work as usual. I got ready and set out in my car at about 7:30am to arrive the hospital within the usual 20 minutes drive. I live in a satellite town, outskirt of the capital city of Nigeria (Abuja). I had barely driven for five minutes when I met a military check point with many vehicles in a long queue, taking turns to be cleared, before continuing their journey.

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the entire world in just a short time.  The impacts have been enormous and far reaching!  For the world of Pharmacy, it thrust us into the spotlight, as front-line workers, both in retail and hospital sectors where most of the Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians and Assistants work in front line positions, caring for patients.


Extending on our ISOPP commentary which includes perspectives from practice leaders from 28 countries globally, we look forward to inviting your participation in a forthcoming individual member survey. 

The survey is currently being developed through established review panel of practice leaders and general practitioners, with expected distribution July-Sept 2020


ISOPP recently provided a global perspective (including both developed and developing nations) on how COVID-19 has impacted access to and delivery of cancer therapies through a publication in the Journal of Oncology Pharmacy Practice and a webinar
