Objectives, mission & vision

Our objectives are to further hospital pharmacy in all its aspects. This includes:

  • To promote the exchange of views on professional subjects relating to the duties and responsibilities of hospital pharmacists.
  • To promote pharmaceutical care for patients in hospital related facilities.
  • To foster continuous education programs for hospital pharmacists.
  • To promote realisation of the goals of FIP as they apply to hospital pharmacists.
  • To pay particular attention to the needs of developing countries.
  • To promote integrating pharmacy services through communication and collaboration with other sections.

Our vision for hospital pharmacy is set out in the revised Basel Statements on the future of hospital pharmacy. This document contains consensus statements by hospital pharmacists from around the world that were initially developed at the inaugural FIP Global Conference on the Future of Hospital Pharmacy in Basel, Switzerland, in 2008.

We undertake many activities within the framework of our objectives and vision.
