We are pleased to announce a Special Issue of the journal Pharmacy, guest edited by Dr Vibhu Paudyal, University of Birmingham and Dr Katie MacLure, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.
Health inequality is one of the key public health and healthcare challenges in the 21st century. Disparities around access to healthcare, medicines, health literacy, and resources to manage medicines requires multi-disciplinary and multi-sector action. In this context, pharmacy as a healthcare set up and a profession has a key role to play. Pharmacists’ expertise, interests, contribution and skills are beginning to be well recognised internationally. It is imperative that best practices in research, service development and evaluation that aim to address health inequality through pharmacy are published, allowing best practices, key challenges and lessons to be shared widely.
