Around the world, the role of the pharmacist differs according to the continents. We take a look at three countries: the United States, France and Cameroon.
In the United States, Walmart, owner of a vast network of pharmacies, is under attack for its role in the opioid crisis. In the midst of a health crisis, French pharmacists are testing and vaccinating against Covid-19. In Africa, faced with the scourge of falsified medicines, particularly in Cameroon, how can the safety of products sold in pharmacies be guaranteed?
