The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) is the global body representing pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences. Through our 140 national organisations, academic institutional members and individual members, we represent over three million pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists around the world.

Founded in 1912, FIP is a non-governmental organisation with its head office in the Netherlands. Through our partnerships and extensive pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences network, we work to support the development of the pharmacy profession, through practice and emerging scientific innovations, in order to meet the world’s health care needs and expectations. 

FIP is enabled to succeed in this vision through the recognition and respect it gains through the fulfilment of its mission, which is to:

“Improve global health by advancing pharmaceutical education, pharmaceutical sciences and pharmaceutical practice thus encouraging, promoting and enabling better discovery, development, access to and responsible use of appropriate, cost-effective, quality medicines worldwide.”
