The Indian Pharmaceutical Association (IPA) has been celebrating the National Pharmacy Week every year. The major focus of NPW celebrations is to create awareness amongst the public, other healthcare providers and the authorities, about the NPW theme in specific and about the pharmacy profession and role of the pharmacist in general. NPW celebration is celebrated by conducting various Pharma related competitions for students of around 40 Pharmacy colleges in the Pune region.
The aim of conducting these events is to motivate the young budding pharmacists to develop their confidence, knowledge, leadership qualities, organizational capacity and make them understand about the importance of the profession thus to excel in the field. One institutional co-ordinator each from faculty and students from each organizing institution is allotted as incharge for the respective events who enable the smooth conduct of the events. The event is concluded by a grand ceremony of Prize Distribution wherein eminent personalities from the Pharmacy field are invited.
