76<sup>th</sup> International Congress of FIP from a community pharmacy perspective

  • Jan Du Toit


The 76th International Congress of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 28 August to 1 September 2016. The event was attended by more than 2231 pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists from 101 different countries. The theme for the Congress 2016 was “Reducing the global burden of disease – Rising to the challenge”. The delegation from South Africa consisted of 18 persons and included representatives from the Professional Associations, South African Pharmacy Council, Pharmacy Schools, the Young Pharmacists Group and Corporate Pharmacy. The programme for the Congress was, as always, packed with worthwhile presentations and parallel sessions to provide something for everyone, depending on your field of expertise or interest. Presentations were complemented with a wide variety of (mostly) academic posters as part of the Exhibition at the Congress.
