The FIP Provision Programme supports the advancement of pharmacy worldwide and seeks to ensure all FIP members have access to the highest quality education, training and expertise to deliver the FIP vision. It also directly contributes to our vision of a world where everyone benefits from access to safe, effective, quality and affordable medicines.
The FIP Provision Programme engages, develops and supports FIP members’ professional development and promotes the availability of quality educational and training programmes that meet the needs of our members and organisations while leaving no one behind.
