President-elect Paul Sinclair (pictured) will begin his duties as president of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) immediately after the death of Dominique Jordan president of FIP following a period of ill health.
“Dominique was an exceptional advocate for our pharmacy profession and dedicated to advancing pharmacy in every country. He was convinced that FIP was the platform by which this could be achieved. During his presidency, he led our federation through the global crisis of COVID-19 and introduced the vision of ‘One FIP’, which resulted in greater collaboration between the many constituencies within our organisation and increased engagement with our members,” said FIP CEO Catherine Duggan.
“Dominique was a leader of our profession at a local, national and international level for many years. His commitment to pharmacy was never more evident than during the COVID-19 pandemic when he championed an expanded hands-on role of pharmacists when many primary healthcare professionals went to virtual models. His leadership of FIP has seen our federation grow stronger, more resilient and become more member focused. Dominique was a passionate pharmacist, a strong, considered leader and a good friend to all,” Mr Sinclair said.
Paul Sinclair is a Sydney-based community pharmacist with 40 years of experience, he will be the first Australian president of FIP.
