ESTEVE’S COLLABORATION WITH FARMAMUNDI AND SEFAP WINS AWARDS GRANTED BY CORREO FARMACÉUTICO

Both projects have been recognized as two of the Best Pharmacy Initiatives of the Year, during the award ceremony in the Teatros del Canal in Madrid.

This year ESTEVE has been awarded twice in the Correo Farmacéutco Awards. The projects promoted from collaborations with Farmamundi and the Spanish Society of Primary Care Pharmacists (SEFAP) respectively, have been selected as Best Pharmacy Initiatives 2012. The prize was awarded at the Teatros del Canal in Madrid.

The collaboration agreement between Farmamundi and ESTEVE ―ongoing since 2005― bolsters humanitarian assistance in emergency situations among the world's most vulnerable populations. That is why Correo Farmacéutico has decided to recognize this collaboration as one of the Best Pharmacy Initiatives of the Year 2012 in the Category of Solidarity Projects and Patronage.

Over the past year, Farmamundi's Humanitarian and Emergency Aid Fund (FAHE) has been involved in a diverse range of interventions which have benefited more than 64,000 people in vulnerable situations from ten countries: Haiti, Dominican Republic, Mali, Uganda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Palestine, Senegal, El Salvador, and Guatemala. In 2013, ESTEVE and Farmamundi have expanded and strengthened their collaboration for resource optimization purposes. The pharmaceutical company has made a meaningful financial contribution and has concentrated all medicine donations on this NGO and the FAHE, which will manage them directly or through collaborating institutions.

Meanwhile, in the category of pharmaceutical care and health education, the collaboration between ESTEVE and SEFAP has been awarded by the publication of "Basic elements of the medication approach to the chronic patient: Patient information, reconciliation, review and medicine adherence". That is, an instruction book which addresses four key areas for safe management of medication: the interview, the reconciliation, the review of treatment and the medicine adherence. Presented at the XVII National Congress, it is another step of ESTEVE's commitment to improve chronic patient care, which ESTEVE has an extensive experience in the chronicity most relevant areas.

The Correo Farmacéutico Award to the Best Pharmacy Initiative of the Year is a public recognition of initiatives fostered by pharmacy professionals and intended to improve the world of pharmacy, pharmaceutical care, and health. These awards include 6 categories: Pharmaceutical Policy and Legal Initiatives; Profession and Deontology; Pharmaceutical Care and Health Education; Research, Pharmacology and Products; Management; Training; and Solidarity Projects and Patronage.
