Global Self-Care Federation
The Global Self-Care Federation is a federation of regional and national associations, and manufacturers and distributors of non-prescription medicines on all continents. CHP Australia is the local member of GSCF. The Federation is dedicated to a world where self-care increasingly contributes to better health and more sustainable healthcare systems.
The main aim of the Self-Care Readiness Index is to assist GSCF members to engage with jurisdictions and policy makers at regional and national levels about the importance of adopting self-care in national health policies. The survey was conducted in ten countries: United States, Brazil, United Kingdom, France, Poland, Egypt, Nigeria, South Africa, China and Thailand. This latest version includes all 20 countries – 10 from the first phase which is the report on the website and the 10 countries examined in phase 2 (which includes Australia) .
