• Transferring from one person to another, such as tuberculosis, malaria, HIV, or influenza • Majority of mortality was caused by communicable diseases in the past

What IPSF has done?

Joint statement of WHO, IPSF and IFMSA in 2002:
Advising regular physical activity to patients patients and people of all ages is one of the best ”medicine”

Healthy Living and Diabetes Campaign launched in 2005
“The purpose of the proposed IPSF

Healthy Living and Diabetes campaign is to increase awareness and further involve future pharmacists in the prevention, treatment, and increased public education on the issues of obesity and diabetes. We aim to encourage pharmacy students world wide to become proactively involved in preventative medicine, while preserving their role as drug and medication experts.”

• World Diabetes Day 14th November each year • Campaigns on that day or any another suitable date(s) • Campaigns can include:
– Increasing awareness of other pharmacy students or general public – Evaluate risk factors, include lifestyle counselling – Doesn’t need to just focus on diabetes but include cardiovascular diseases too

Small group discussions
• Form groups of 5-8 persons, mix up nations • Topics:
1) Diabetes CD – content for general public 2) Diabetes CD – content for pharmacy students 3) Interprofessional collaboration in healthy living and diabetes campaigns

Discussion time

• Collaboration with other healthcare students
– Nutrition students, counselling on what to eat – When doing campaigns, setting up separate stations staffed with students from different professions – Collaboration depends on traditions, also how universities or campuses are located – Collaboration can be on local level, but not national level, or vice versa
