FIP Awards

FIP feels it is of utmost importance to support and recognise individuals who, through their vision and committment to their profession, are making outstanding contributions to the fields of pharmacy practice and pharmaceutical sciences. As such, each year FIP honours those who have demonstrated commendable work and dedication in areas which parallel the overall FIP mission of advancing pharmacy practice, science and education for the betterment of global health.

Award winners are announced and welcomed each year at the Opening Ceremony of the FIP Congress.

Background

At the Bureau Meeting of 3 September 2004 , it was decided that as of 2005 these Foundation awards would become FIP Awards.
