Health promotion and disease prevention are now seen as a priority of the health service. The pharmacists' role must develop to reflect this shift in emphasis away from simply treating those who are ill. This chapter traces the historical background of the development of the pharmacist's role in health promotion, discusses the nature of the role, considers the emerging infrastructure, and looks to future developments.
