 About The Book  

   Social and Preventive Pharmacy has been in¬cluded as a compulsory subject in B.Pharmacy (8th Semester) as per the syllabus designed by the Pharmacy Council of India. In this book, the needs of social pharmacy courses in pharmacy are discussed with reference to both developed and developing countries.

   The rationale of this course is to introduce a number of health and phar¬maceutical challenges to the students so that they develop consciousness about such problems and devise alternative solutions. This course also ini¬tiated several national health programmes. The job duties and responsibili¬ties of the pharmacist in these contexts are discussed in the book.

   The content is developed in simple language and easy-to-understand manner, covering the syllabus and even beyond.
