The novel coranavirus this year has yet again highlighted the importance of pharmacists as scientists, researchers, innovators and above all the ideal caregivers in the medical fraternity.
The vaccine or cure for Covid 19 will be found by pharmacists, it is thus important for all to realize that ultimately the prognosis of any disease or illness is highly determined by the medicine they are given. Pharmacists are therefore the custodians of entire generations to ensure health and well being of the citizens.
I call upon the ministry of health to therefore employ pharmacists in all sectors and medical teams . In the coming months various vaccine and drug trials for Covid 19 will be conducted and only pharmacists are capable of doing such tasks yet there are more unemployed pharmacists in Kenya more than ever.
It is said that you never know the value of someone till they are gone, well we pharmacists are now at your disposal, ready for service and armed to give you the best quality care .
From a proud Pharmacist.
