WSMI Declaration on Self-Care and Self-Medication

The WSMI Board has approved a general “Declaration” relating to self-care and self-medication. The purpose of this statement is to summarise some basic principles and beliefs about self-care and responsible self-medication, to which the Board subscribes. This declaration also provides a ‘template’ to facilitate member association discussions with healthcare professionals, government and regulatory officials, and others. Thus although the statement represents the WSMI Board’s global view, it is appropriate that the text is modified according to the interest and needs of individual country situations. Versions of the basic declaration have been developed by discussion and consensus in Mexico and Indonesia. Click for the declaration.
