Pharmaceutical services play a crucial role in any health system. Pharmacists are the main health professionals to ensure that people have access to good and safe medicines and to make certain that these medicines are used rationally. While the role of pharmacists in providing health-care services in Libya remains restricted, the scope of pharmacy practice is vast and encompasses a variety of roles and functions. Most of today's pharmacists' services are oriented toward clinical outcomes using medicines. Therefore, pharmacists are focusing on optimizing the use of medications, promoting health, wellness, and preventing diseases. Pharmaceutical services are currently being tailored to be event driven to fit the current COVID-19 pandemic crisis and to help combat this disease and its consequences. This article discusses different pharmaceutical services that can be provided by pharmacists in all practice settings, for the Libyan healthcare system and to the society in general during COVID-19 crisis.
