Its mission shall be to advance and support the aims and objectives of the Federation at regional level.

IPSF EMRO was Established in August 2008, after being approved during The 54th IPSF World Congress in Romania, our EMRO office is managed by the RWG, who are pharmacy students and recent graduates from the Eastern Mediterranean region.
