International Pharmaceutical Federation
The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) is the global body representing pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences, founded in 1912. Through our 139 national organisations, academic institutional members and individual members, we represent over three million pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists around the world.
FIP is a non-governmental organisation that has been in official relations with the World Health Organization since 1948. Through our partnerships and our extensive global pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences network, we work to support the development of the pharmacy profession, through practice and emerging scientific innovations, in order to meet the world’s health care needs and expectations.
Hospital Pharmacy Section
The Hospital Pharmacy Section was founded in 1957. It is the second largest section of FIP. We focus on education communication, and improving the practice of pharmacy in hospitals around the world.
The Hospital Pharmacy Section has a Board of Officers to provide leadership for the Section
and to assist in planning and running the Congress programs. The Board of Officers consists
of an elected President and five Vice Presidents, each representing a different region of the
world. The Board also includes an elected Secretary, Assistant Secretary and Treasurer.
