Abstract

There is increasing demand for pharmacist in community health centres due to expanding pharmaceutical services from product oriented to patient oriented. Pharmacy regulation provide information about pharmaceutical care activities in a community health centre, i.e. assessing the legal and clinical appropriateness of prescriptions, giving drug information and counselling, and doing ward rounds; besides planning, dispensing, distributing, and documenting drug use. There are 949 community health centres (puskesmas) which is distributed to 38 district or city in East Java; 161 pharmacists and 692 pharmacy technicians. Some puskesmas did not have any pharmacist or pharmacy technicians. A puskesmas would be able to provide a good pharmaceutical care if they have sufficient and competent pharmacist. In 2010, the ratio of pharmacist is about 1 pharmacist for 10.000 populations, every year the number of graduate pharmacist is about 3.500 from 61 school of pharmacy (undergraduate programs, S1). There are a lot of licenced pharmacist, but most of them work at pharmacy (medical dispensing). In 2012 fifteen school of pharmacy have accreditation A; 15 school of pharmacy have accreditation B; 29 school of pharmacy have accreditation C; and another 7 have not accreditated yet. Their competencies are varied. There is a gap between supply and demand for pharmacist. These issues also comes out from interview with provincial or district health office staff. They said not only about limited resources and a lack of self-confidence, but also interpersonal relationship and drug affordability.
