Slovak to top EU pharma body

SLOVAKIA’S pharmacists scored a historical success on the European level earlier this year when Štefan Krchňák, a member of the presidium of the Slovak Chamber of Pharmacists (SLeK), was elected president of the Pharmaceutical Group of the European Union (PGEU) for 2014, the SLeK informed in its June 21 press release.

SLOVAKIA’S pharmacists scored a historical success on the European level earlier this year when Štefan Krchňák, a member of the presidium of the Slovak Chamber of Pharmacists (SLeK), was elected president of the Pharmaceutical Group of the European Union (PGEU) for 2014, the SLeK informed in its June 21 press release.

“I perceive being elected president [of the PGEU] as an opportunity to participate in fulfilling the vision of all European pharmacists to free themselves from the economic as well as ethical crisis, deregulation and various marketing activities, which make the pharmacies unfree and dependent,” said Krchňák, as cited in the press release. “I am convinced that the path leads through closer cooperation of professional medical organisations and communication with patients.”

The PGEU, launched in 1959, is the European association that represents community pharmacists. Its current mission is to promote the role of the pharmacist as a key player in public health. Krchňák is the vice-president of the PGEU for 2013.
