NZAPS-O Report of the 63rd IPSF World Congress, Taipei, Taiwan, 2017

The International Pharmaceutical Student’s Federation (IPSF) represents pharmaceutical students, pharmacy students and recent graduates from over 100 countries from all over the world. IPSF aims to promote improved public health through provision of information, education, networking and a range of publications and professional initiatives. They work closely with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) to succeed in achieving their goals. IPSF also provide opportunities for our students to attend a range of congresses/symposiums to share our opinions and represent NZAPS-O on a larger level. Every year there is a highly-anticipated World Congress (WC). This year it was held in Taipei, Taiwan in July-August. This congress was a ten-day event where delegates from over 80 different countries attend educational and social events.

Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium (APPS) Report, Thailand 21st – 26th July 2017

In July, three students from The Otago School of Pharmacy had the opportunity to attend the 16th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium (APPS) in Thailand. Nina, Prashikha and Alisa are third year pharmacy students who went and represented the wider NZAPS-O association at the symposium. We were able to attend seminars, workshops, regional assembly and cultural events that united students from various countries to build friendships, share knowledge and encourage one another. We also partook in a public health campaign that proved to be a success.
