This Christmas we need your support!

The PharmAid scheme is our charitable initiative where older versions of the British National Formularies (BNFs) are redistributed to low and middle income countries each year. Without this scheme, some of the poorest nations in the world would not have access to reliable medicines information and would be unable to use medicines in a safe and effective way. PharmAid gives healthcare workers vital access to medicines information they would otherwise be lacking.

Empowering pharmacists to improve health and wellbeing throughout the Commonwealth

The Commonwealth encompasses some of the world’s poorest nations. The CPA advances health, promotes wellbeing and improves education for the benefit of the people of the Commonwealth. We support the development of safe and effective systems of medicines management, healthier lifestyles, and the reduction of health inequalities. We achieve this through building strong collaborative networks, partnering with member organizations to improve the quality of pharmacy practice and creating platforms for the dissemination of knowledge about pharmaceutical sciences and professional practice.
