INTRODUCTION

1. Following the success of the 2nd Annual Public Health Campaign organized by the Sedaya Pharmacy's Student Society (SPSS) last year in May 2003, the SPSS will once again be organizing a public health campaign this year. This year, the campaign will be held in Jaya Jusco Taman Maluri from the 4th - 6th of June 2004.

2. The main objectives of the campaign include :-

:- To enhance public awareness of the various over-the-counter drugs available in the market now and the importance of self care
:- To promote the role of pharmacists as caring professionals
:- To cultivate professionalism early in pharmacy students
:- To expose pharmacy students to community service in preparing them for the real world.

3. With the campaign theme as Good Health Begins With Oneself, the program will be focusing on self care, and will highlight the various diseases and ailments that prevail in the community nowadays. With the knowledge on self medication on the rise among the public, it is crucial that they be equipped with proper and accurate information on the medication they seek from pharmacies. As such, the program will also be touching on the various over-the-counter drugs available in the market, as well as complementary therapies that are sought as an alternative to the mainstream medicine.

4. The exhibitions section will focus on 3 main things. The different and common diseases prevalent in the community, various over-the-counter medicines and drugs available in the market, and alternative medicines such as acupuncture etc

5. On top of that, there will also be health tests during the exhibition. The tests include blood glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure checks and body mass index determination. Quizzes and lucky draws will be carried out during the campaign as a means to test the public on how much information they have gained from the exhibitions, and also to attract the public with attractive prizes and gifts.
