Pharmabridge

Pharmabridge aims at strengthening pharmaceutical services in developing (DC) and transitional countries through coordinated support from the pharmacy establishment and individual pharmacists in developed countries. The project even goes beyond this: It also aims at creating links amongst pharmacists worldwide and is supported by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), its Board of Pharmaceutical Practice (BPP) and the Commonwealth Pharmaceutical Association (CPA).
All those interested in the project, be it from developing or developed countries, wanting to establish contacts with colleagues from other countries (or even a specific country) are invited to attend this meeting.
People having books, DVD’s etc. to offer can bring them to the meeting and hand them over to colleagues from less affluent countries.
