Pakistan Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation
The Pakistan Pharmaceutical Students' Federation (PPHSF) was founded by a Mr Sohail Khan who was passionate to provide IPSF opportunities and other national-level platforms to pharmacy students and pharmacy graduates of Pakistan. With the help of a small group of students, the organisation started to lay down its foundation in 2015.
The objective of PPHSF is to empower young pharmacists to explore various aspects of the dynamic pharmacy profession. The opportunities provided by PPHSF include various skill development workshops, latest pharmacy practice seminars, health-related campaigns and internship programs. Other activities include pharmacy profession advocacy programs and health camps. PPHSF forms a network to link pharmacy students and professionals from all over Pakistan!
PPHSF takes part in IPSF projects and activities by joining a lot of pharmacy education webinars. Last year, a few members participated in the online Patient Counseling Event and Compounding Quiz. Some members submitted articles for the IPSF Pharmacy Education Newsletter. Members have been active in various online campaigns, for example, the Antibiotic Awareness Week Challenge. PPHSF is looking forward to participating in the Vampire Cup and Nanjing Statements Challenge too!
