Moreover, the conference is a great place to meet like-minded passionate students, all keen to make a difference to the profession.
The theme of the Annual Conference this year is Global Pharmacy. Millions of lives are lost to preventable diseases. Pharmacists are the medicines experts and are well-equipped to achieve Global Goal 3 from WHO – “Good health and well-being”. During the Annual Conference, you will learn about the roles of pharmacists worldwide, how pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry can improve the health of the underserved populations, develop knowledge about global health issues and reflect on the roles of pharmacists in improving global health.
