- 236 Downloads
Pharmacy is a profession in the move all over the world, and while there is a lot of unfinished business in pharmacy, a lot had been achieved. However, pharmacy in the developing world is still plauged by the forces that tie it to the ground and pin it to the old routine of counting pills and hope for the best. This commentary reports and analyzes a phenomenon that is sweeping the Arabic speaking Middle East and promises to liberate pharmacy through a pharmacy Arabic spring. Factors that could be contributing to the past, and current, apathy of the practice of pharmacy in the Arab world will be discussed, and signs of a closing-in change in the profession will be shared.
