Tribute to FIP President, the late Dominique Jordan

20 August 2023


The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) is today paying tribute to International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) President Mr Dominique Jordan, who sadly passed away overnight.


Dominique shared news of his cancer diagnosis in July 2022 and had been undergoing treatment since.


A Swiss community pharmacist, Dominique became a member of FIP 20 years ago. In his home country, his actions to advance pharmacy included roles as president and CEO, concurrently, of pharmaSuisse, the Swiss association of pharmacists.


Dominique was elected president of FIP in 2018. Before that, he served FIP and global pharmacy as chair of the Board of Pharmaceutical Practice (2014-2018).


PSA National President Dr Fei Sim FPS paid tribute to Mr Jordan.


“Despite his ongoing battle with cancer, Dominique always captured the tenacity and positivity in life,” Dr Sim said.


“Dominique has worked tirelessly and given much of his life to professional pharmacy both in Australia and internationally and leaves a huge legacy to the profession. He will be greatly missed.


“On behalf of Australian pharmacists, PSA offers our deepest condolences to Mr Jordan’s friends, family, and colleagues.”


As per FIP Statutes (article 16.13), president-elect Paul Sinclair AM MPS will begin his term effective immediately.
