6th IPSF APRO Good Pharmacy Practice Education 2021, Nepal

Poster for GPPed 2021

GPP stands for Good Pharmacy Practice, which aims to improve pharmacy services offered to the general public. GPP is the practice of pharmacy that responds to the needs of the people who use the pharmacists’ services to provide optimal, evidence-based care. To support this practice, it is essential that there be an established national framework of quality standards and guidelines. GPPed (Good Pharmacy Practice Education) is more centered on pharmacy education and aims to improve it via practical learning. This involves making budding pharmacists more aware of their role and their country’s needs so that after graduating, they can make practical use of their education by providing better services. GPPed Program and Trainers Development Camp (TDC) are programs introduced by the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation Asia Pacific Regional Office (IPSF APRO) and IPSF.

The 6th APRO GPPed Program will be hosted by FoP, Nepal themed “Implementation of Good Pharmacy Practice: Foundation For Better Health”. The effective and practical implementation of good pharmacy practice is the key for ensuring the better health standard of people. The Asia Pacific countries have the policy and guidelines for Good Pharmacy Practice but its implementation has not been effective. Working for the effective and practical implementation of Good Pharmacy Practice policy and guidelines leads to the establishment of better patient care and ultimately better health standards among the people.

GPPed Nepal was scheduled in 2020 but the COVID-19 pandemic has created an impact on the planning. The postponed date is for 2021 keeping track of the safety of the participants and the organizers. GPPed Nepal brings informative and fun workshops, international night, symposium sessions and post event tours around culturally and naturally rich places. 

You can learn more about GPPed Nepal through IPSF website, FoP social media handle and GPPed official instagram handle gpped 2021.
