During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Taiwanese government has planned comprehensive epidemic prevention measures.


The student pharmacists of Taipei Medical University learned about the outstanding contribution of community pharmacists through the mask-rationing plan

Among the measures, the most outstanding policy was the implementation of the mask-rationing plan. The advanced prevention concepts have enabled the people of Taiwan to continue with their normal life during the epidemic, and the credit should be attributed to the pharmacists who helped realize the mask-rationing plan.

150 juniors from the School of Pharmacy of the College of Pharmacy of our school physically participated in the realization process of the “mask-rationing plan”, starting from scratch. During the internship in the community pharmacies from January to February, 2020, the excellent medical energy of the community pharmacists, their continuous improvement in operation process, and the provision of knowledge on epidemic prevention and medication were experienced. Besides, our student pharmacists also participated in this epidemic prevention battle with their knowledge and skills.

Thoughts of the student pharmacists participating in the mask-rationing plan:
