Abstract

The aspiration of many countries towards establishing universal health coverage will require an enhanced health workforce, including pharmacists that can meet the need for pharmaceutical expertise in the population it serves. It is important to monitor trends in the workforce over time. The countries identified as having data for each of the time points 2006, 2009 and 2012 were present in all WHO regions, with Europe having the most countries with data available and South East Asia the fewest. All WHO regions have experienced an increase in the density of pharmacists (measured as number of pharmacists per 10,000 population) over the period 2006–12. However, some countries indicate a reduction in the density of pharmacists. African countries show large relative increases in acceleration of capacity building, but remain significantly behind in terms of absolute capacity per capita. South East Asian and Middle Eastern countries also show large proportional changes in pharmacist workforce. The global trend is an increase in workforce across all nations and regions, and this is a move in the right direction towards improved access to, and availability of, pharmaceutical expertise. However, there is still much to be done, with some regions and low-income countries still displaying a disproportionately low number of pharmacists on small overall capacity for delivering pharmacy services.
