    At this year’s Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana’s (PSGH) Annual General Meeting (AGM), a seminal 10-year strategic plan document, the first of its kind in the history of the PSGH, was put before the general membership for adoption.

    The 10-year Strategic Plan was developed under the auspices of a 16-member Strategic Plan Committee chaired by Pharm. Charles Fordjour. Presenting the document to the house, Pharm. Forjdour, a seasoned senior pharmacist in pharmaceutical marketing and strategic planning, expressed hope that the plan will help ground the practice of pharmacy on professionalism, a key principle required to guide the strategic direction of the PSGH.

    He acknowledged the unstinting efforts and support he had received from all the members of the Strategic Plan Committee, who represented various interest and practice groups under the PSGH.

    In addition to making a case for members to accept the Plan "as the road map to improve practice”, he further recommended for amendments in the PSGH constitution to ensure that the Plan was well accommodated by the fundamental structures of the Society.   

    The 10-year strategic framework is anchored on four principal pillars: 1) Highest Standards of Patient Centered Pharmacy Care 2) Capacity Building 3) Local Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management 4) Sustainable PSGH.

    The groundbreaking document, a key priority of the current Governing Board (GB) of the PSGH is expected to provide the necessary framework to attain a new vision for the PSGH: "We strive for the wellbeing of all through the provision of excellent pharmaceutical services at all times.” The new vision, according to the architects of the document, reflects the medley of consumers of pharmaceutical services who benefit from the knowledge and skills of pharmacists.

    Also contained in the document is a new mission statement that recognizes the leadership potentials of pharmacists at all levels and areas of practice.

    The PSGH President, Pharm. Thomas Boateng Appiagyei, last two days in his speech during the opening ceremony of this year’s AGM remarked that the Strategic Plan symbolically represents a "framework for our collective future through strategic visionary leadership.” Today at the Business Session, some members lauded the efforts behind the Plan whilst hailing it as a legacy-building feat to propel the pharmacy profession into the next 10 years.

     

    Members raised funds to support the implementation of the 10-year Strategic Plan. Pharm. Appiagyei, the President himself, pledged to support the Plan with five thousand (5000.00) Ghana Cedis. Some GB members and other high profile personalities of the profession pledged to financially support the Plan’s implementation.

     

    Contained in the documents are strategic goals of the various interest and practice groups under the PSGH. All practice/interest groups goals are aligned with the overall goals of the mother body, PSGH.

     

    Prior to its adoption today at the Business Session, the Plan had been presented to the Fellows of the Society for their incisive inputs. This was done to ensure that all loop holes in the Plan were identified and duly addressed.
