Happy New Year.
What is your goal for the New Year? When money, work or academics come with measurable standards for achievement, health was seldom on the top of the list until recent years. Being healthy couldn’t be made by a wish, or ensured by insurance coverage or taking health products.
During the COVID pandemic, HIA community pharmacy provided surgical masks at a low cost to the community and offered consultation services and public education to enhance the public capacity for self-managements in managing COVID symptoms and different health issues and diseases. We work with property management to reinforce public hygiene and occupational health security guards, with restaurants to increase the provision of healthy menus, with schools to provide health support, and with different foundations to manage social determinant factors.
