Designation of Base Pharmacy for A(H1N1),
and PR Activities for Public Prevention
KPA is now operating 1480 base pharmacies nationwide to prevent the infection of A(H1N1) in local communities, and to minimize severe complications when an infection occurs.
In addition, KPA has held PR campaigns to provide reliable information on A(H1N1) and methods of personal hygiene maintenance to prevent the spread of A(H1N1), at bus terminals where there are large numbers of commuters. During the campaign, pharmacists educated the public on proper hand-washing methods and directly distributed leaflets on prevention measures and how-to outlines to the public, while providing consultations on A(H1N1). In addition, the PR leaflets were provided on buses. As well, approximately3,000 bottles of hand sanitizer were distributed to encourage people to maintain good hygiene at all times.
