Who we are

Representing pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists and pharmaceutical educators

The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) is the global body for pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences and pharmaceutical education. Through 153 national organisations, allied organisations (including academic institutional members) and individual members, we represent over four million pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists and pharmaceutical educators around the world.

Supporting the pharmacy profession

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, and through developing the pharmacy workforce in order to meet the world’s health care needs and expectations. 

Leader of pharmacy at a global level

Molecules become medicines when pharmaceutical expertise is added. In turn, pharmacists — through ensuring responsible use — optimise the effects of these medicines. FIP is recognised as the leader of pharmacy at a global level. We continue to expand our presence, within pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences, and influence through partnerships with some of the world’s leading health, policymaking, education and science institutions.
