Pharmabridge® is a voluntary initiative aimed at strengthening pharmacy services in low-income and emerging countries. Pharmabridge was established to link individuals and institutions together to actively exchange resources and training in pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical science, pharmaceutical industry and professional pharmacy education.
Supported by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), Pharmabridge was founded in 1999, to foster communication and exchange of information, resources, and experiences between pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists, and pharmacy educators from all corners of the globe, leading to better pharmacy services, improved patient care and enhanced community health.
The Pharmabridge project aims to strengthen pharmaceutical services and pharmacy education in developing and transitional countries through coordinated support from pharmacy establishments in developed and more advanced developing countries.
This is accomplished by establishing institutional and personal links between schools of pharmacy, pharmacists associations, drug information centres, hospital pharmacies and individual pharmacists.
Pharmabridge is supported by the FIP Foundation for education and research. If you would like to get involved or donate for this project, please visit the FIP Foundation website here.
