North South University Pharmaceutical Club conducted a rally on Sunday to highlight the unity among pharmacists and their relentless efforts to create a healthier world on the occasion of World Pharmacists Day 2022.
The spirit of the rally was in accordance with this year’s theme, ‘Pharmacy United in Action for a Healthier World’, as set by the International Pharmaceutical Federation, said a press release.
This theme was set to showcase the cumulative efforts of the pharmaceutical industry and its significant role in optimising healthcare services globally.

The rally aimed to create further awareness of the continuous diligence of pharmacists to make rational use of medication more accessible, which was elucidated in the speeches of the respected guests and faculties present.
To inaugurate this event NSU pro-vice chancellor M Ismail Hossain shared his delight in seeing the Pharmaceutical Sciences Department always striving for building awareness through a multitude of events annually. His speech shed light on the work of pharmacists in a variety of sectors, including production in the industrial sector, quality assurance and quality control of medication, as well as marketing, making pharmaceutical sciences a multidisciplinary field.
The dean of the School of Health and Life Sciences, Hasan Mahmud Reza, focused on this pertinent day by encouraging further establishment of the work of pharmacists in our community. He also spoke of the inadequate recognition of the role played by the pharmacists in the country.
Chairman of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, NSU, GM Sayedur Rahman said, ‘The involvement of pharmacists in every sector of healthcare is yet to be established in our country. However, we have been working towards integrating pharmacists in every stage of healthcare, starting from the industrial sector to patient counselling.’ Faculty advisor of NSUPC, Anika Tabassum Bristy, along with the respected faculty members of the pharmaceutical sciences department were present to boost the morale of students participating.
Sponsored by ACI Pharmaceuticals and Globe Pharmaceuticals Ltd, the event acted as an excellent platform for pharmacists in academic and industrial sectors to come together.
