Gerry Harrington, Senior Vice President Consumer Health, Food, Health & Consumer Products of Canada (FHCP)

Food, Health & Consumer Products of Canada (FHCP) is pleased to offer its heartfelt congratulations on 60 years of making a difference to our long-time partner in the global effort supporting self-care, AESGP.

Europeans and Canadians alike share the health benefits of access to our members’ products, while our respective healthcare systems benefit from the resulting reduced demand for health services.

Our partnership extends back to the 1970s when, together with our American counterparts, AESGP and the Proprietary Association of Canada, (FHCP’s predecessor), spearheaded the establishment of the Global Self-Care Federation’s predecessor, the World Federation of Proprietary Medicine Manufacturers. AESGP’s leadership played a critical role in creating an official relationship between GSCF and the World Health Organization, paving the way for crucial policy initiatives on the global stage.
