Federação Nacional de Farmácias de Itália (Federfarma)

I received your newsletter on the crisis you are living in Portugal, so I decided to sign immediately your public petition and to join to your campaign in defense of a free community pharmacy economically viable and proud to be always side by side of patients in demanding to the government not to dismantle the huge value of a widespread pharmacy network.

According to me an efficient pharmacy network means an invaluable resource for the public health and a real effective tool “to spread health” to all people in the country regardless of their social and economic condition. 

We cannot afford to lose this precious value especially in the most deprived areas of the country where community pharmacy, in Portugal as in Italy, is the only health setting replying to every patient need. 

Myself, Federfarma Council of Presidency and all Italian community pharmacists are today on your side in this crucial moment of your professional life.
