Pharmacy in GB back in FIP

Great Britain is back in membership of FIP.

The Pharmacists′ Defence Association has been announced as one of six new organisations admitted as members to the international pharmacists body by the FIP Council, meeting in Seville, Spain, today (September 22). 

The other organisations are the
Caribbean Association of Pharmacists (Jamaica), the Nigerian Association of Pharmacists and Pharmaceutical Scientists in the Americas (USA), the Saudi Pharmaceutical Society and the Saudi Society for Clinical Pharmacy (both Saudi Arabia) and the Syndicate of Kurdistan (Iraq). 

The federation’s total membership organisation number is now 151. The FIP Council voted to admit two further organisations, the Federation of Cooperative Pharmacists of Greece and the Pharmacy Association of Lesotho, as observer organisations. Through its membership, FIP has presence in 154 countries and territories.

The UK has not been represented at national level in FIP since the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, a founding member of the Federation, at the start of this year. 

FIP used the 80th World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences to publish a global roadmap for the profession, which pulls together the FIP vision for transforming pharmacy worldwide in support of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and FIP’s own Development Goals. 

The roadmap can be accessed here.
