Abstract
In this study I present the evolution of the number of Pharmacies, Pharmacists, Pharmacy graduates, Pharmacy/Population ratio, Pharmacist/Population after 1990. If in 1990 there were 1948 pharmacies, in 2017 their number reached 7945. And the number of pharmacists increased in a fast pace, in 1990 were 6286 to a population of 23206720 inhabitants, in 2017 their number reached 17833 in a population of 19588146 inhabitants. In 2017 the Pharmacy/Population ratio is 2465 and the Pharmacist/Population ratio is 1098. This increase in the number of pharmacists was due to the establishment of new Pharmacy Faculties in different cities of the country after 1990. I also succinctly present the Legislation that has undergone a number of changes over time and has influenced the evolution of these indicators: Law No. 95 of 14 April 2006 on Health Reform, Order of the Minister of Health No. 2234 of 1994, Order of Health Minister No. 201 of 1999, Order of the Minister of Health and Family No. 626 of 2001, Order of Health Minister No. 1199 of 2004, Order of Health Minister No. 962/2009, Law No. 266 of 2008 of the Pharmacy, Law No. 266 of 2008 of the Pharmacy, Reprocessed, Law No. 46 of 21 January 2003 on Patients' Rights.
