The pharmacist: your partner in setting health goals for 2021

Today, pharmacists are playing an increasingly important role. This profession is constantly evolving and is facing many challenges. Their main responsibility is to advise the public about the different uses of the various medicines available on the market. Their duty is to ensure that treatments are delivered in the best possible conditions. Pharmacists are now involved in the medical follow-ups of patients, counselling on use of specific medications like contraceptives, immunisation programmes etc… Moreover, with the recent health crisis, pharmacists are playing an active role in the fight against the Covid-19.

At this period of the year, it is necessary to set our annual health goals. In Mauritius, non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases are increasing each year. Nutrition and diet should be the key priorities of Mauritians. There should also be sensitization campaigns from both the private and the public sectors to raise awareness around the importance of a balanced diet and the reduction of salt and sugar in our meals.

In the current context, a strong immune system plays a crucial role against the complications of the Covid-19 disease. Health goals should also include the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle so as to boost the immune system.

Pharmacists and dispensers can contribute tremendously in helping the public to set health goals as they are constantly in contact with the patients and have thus, developed a strong and confident relationship with them. Pharmacists and dispensers are very good facilitators to promote health campaigns as they are seen as trusted health professionals. Moreover, they are able to personalize each health advice.
