The 62nd Indian Pharmaceutical Congress will be held in Manipal
The 62nd Indian Pharmaceutical Congress (IPC), hosted by Indian Hospital Pharmacists’ Association (IHPA), will be held from December 17 to 19, 2010 in Manipal University.
It was at the 61st edition of the Indian Pharmaceutical Congress Association (IPCA) at Ahmedabad in December 2009 that the announcement was made. This event is taking place in Manipal for the third time.
The IPC is organized every year by IPCA, which is a federation of five professional bodies, viz., Indian Pharmaceutical Association (IPA), Indian Pharmaceutical Graduates’ Association (IPGA), Indian Hospital Pharmacists’ Association (IHPA), Association of Pharmaceutical Teachers’ of India (APTI) and All India Drugs Control Officers' Confederation (AIDCOC).
The 62nd Indian Pharmaceutical Congress will be held at Manipal in Karnataka. It will be held under the aegis of the Indian Hospital Pharmacists' Association (IHPA). As the president of the host association, I have great pleasure in inviting all pharmacists- regulatory, teachers, researchers and industrialists & students to the three-day event. One can look forward to this event in a rather serene atmosphere of Manipal, a small town known for high standards of professional education and human endeavour.
IHPA is a professional body of practicing pharmacists in the country. The practice of pharmacy has seen tremendous changes in the recent years. In the West the pharmacists play stellar roles along with doctors and nurses in health care delivery. The conditions in India up to now have not been satisfactory for the pharmacists. Except in rare instances, the pharmacists in India play only passive role in patient care. It is this lacuna that IHPA is trying to address. The IHPA aims to secure for them their rightful place through more active involvement in pharmaceutical care. They must strive for excellence and status in the society. Professional ethics must be maintained. For assuming the new responsibilities, they should gain more knowledge and develop skills.
