The Western Pacific Pharmaceutical Forum [WPPF] hosted a Regional Pharmacy Leaders Summit in Manila, Philippines on 26th & 27th September 2016. Held to coincide with World Pharmacists Day and commemorate the 15th Anniversary of the foundation of WPPF, the primary objective of the Summit was to identify significant Pharmacy Practice related issues of the countries in the Region and to develop a strategy and work-plan that addresses the common priority issue.
Using a multilateral, collaborative approach, secondary objectives were to strengthen the cooperation between the national pharmacy associations of the Region, to strengthen the governance of pharmacy organisations and to establish a methodology that could be applied to other multilateral issues and by other FIP Regional Pharmacy Forumsi.
The Summit was supported by funding and in-kind support by the International Pharmaceutical Federation [FIP] Foundation, Pharmaceutical Defence Limited [PDL Australia], Unilab Philippines and the Philippine Pharmacists Association.
