Message from the Chairman
Help the Philippines relief work
On 8 November 2013, Haiyan typhoon killed at least 3600 people and over 1000 are reporting missing.
Further to this disaster, FIP member organisation (the Philippine Pharmacists Association - PPhA) is now supporting the medicine requirements of Military hospitals who are receiving victims for treatment. The needs are very specific and it is often challenging to ensure a continuous provision of essential medicines in this situation.
PPhA is also giving out clothes, shirts, tents to our fellow Pharmacists who lost everything they have and in need of temporary shelters.
To support these emergency actions, FIP foundation has decided to create a special fund and calls on the donation of individuals and FIP member organisations to support our colleagues from Philippines.
If you would like to give a donation, click here. Please fill in ‘Phillippines’ in the Comments section of the form.
Thanks in advance for your kind support, demonstrating that Pharmacists care.
The FIP Foundation for Education and Research was established in 1993 with the objective of promoting the educational and research ventures of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists within the general fields of design, manufacture, distribution and use of medicines for humans and/or animals. The Foundation’s activities enable a number of pharmacists to receive congress travel grants, making it possible for them to attend and participate in the annual FIP Congress.
Each year, the Foundation together with YPG announces a grant for professional innovation. The Foundation also provides great support to a number of developing countries for the implementation of GPP. Currently, the Foundation aim is to support FIP’s third pillar, Education, with the establishment of the FIPEd. The FIPEd will play a crucial role in promoting the education of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. Hence, it is a principal focus of the FIP to successfully launch the FIPEd and ardently support its programs and endeavors.
Mr Thony Björk, Chairman
