Many schools of pharmacy in developing countries lack adequate facilities to provide all aspects of the pharmacy curriculum. One of the most common deficiencies is the lack of basic laboratory equipment.
The ‘lab box’ concept envisaged a box of equipment suitable for one student to be able to conduct laboratory exercises as part of the pharmacy.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
