To study and promote the interests of pharmaceutical students and to encourage international cooperation amongst them. IPSF organizes various activities, which give pharmacy students the opportunity to look beyond their national boundaries for fresh and innovative ideas.
IPSF organizes conferences, seminars, and workshops with participants from all countries. Because of its interdisciplinarity, IPSF deals with a variety of topics and themes: Education (Higher Education and Preventive Education), Culture, Human Rights and Sciences.
Significant projects have been implemented by IPSF, such as an AIDS Awareness and Tobacco Alert Campaign, a Women’s Health Campaign and a Student Exchange Programme where pharmacy students have the opportunity to experience and learn about pharmacy
on an international level. Participating students travel to another country for one or two months to work in a hospital or a community. A notable example is the Neema Village Concept Project based in Tanzania, which allow students to live and work with the villagers for periods of three or six months.
