The World Self-Medication Industry (WSMI) has become the Global Self-Care Federation.
The Global Self-Care Federation is dedicated to a world where self-care increasingly contributes to better health and more sustainable healthcare systems.
Self-care is a lifelong habit and culture.
It is the practice of individuals looking after their own health using based on the knowledge and information available to them. It is a decision-making process that empowers individuals to look after their own health efficiently and conveniently, in collaboration with health and social care professionals as needed.
CHP Australia’s CEO sits on the Board of the Global Self-Care Federation and we will work together with the international body to continue to shine the spotlight on responsible Self Care across the world and locally here down-under.
International Self-Care Day is on Wednesday 24 July 2019 and we anticipate marking the day here in Australia alongside our members.
