Dr Catherine Duggan is to take up the position of chief executive of the International Pharmacy Federation from June 1.

Dr Duggan is currently director of professional development at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. In her new role at FIP, she will be responsible for “ensuring that the organisation, as the global voice of pharmaceutical practice, sciences and education, is an integral participant, on behalf of all its members, in global healthcare decisions and actions.” She will lead the Federation through its work to develop and implement a new strategy and vision.

Dr Duggan said: “I’m delighted and honoured to take up the position of CEO at FIP. I look forward to building on the great work of FIP leaders, past and present. To advance pharmacy worldwide, we will work through established partnerships with the World Health Organization and forge new partnerships at the global level to benefit the profession and the public.”

FIP will be holding its Annual Conference in Glasgow this September, the first time the UK has hosted the event in 40 years.
