Founded in 1912, the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) is the global federation of national associations of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. It is a non-governmental organisation in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO). Through its 132 member organisations FIP represents and serves more than three million practitioners and scientists around the world.
The vision that the federation sets forth is that: Wherever and whenever decision makers discuss any aspects of medicines on a global level, FIP is at the table.
FIP is enabled to succeed in this vision through the recognition and respect it gains through the fulfillment of its mission, which is to: Improve global health by advancing pharmacy practice and science to enable better discovery, development, access to and safe use of appropriate, cost-effective, quality medicines worldwide.
