World Congress


The 64th IPSF World Congress of the International Pharmaceutical Students Federation (IPSF) will take place from 30 July to 8 August in Mendoza, Argentina. This year’s theme is "FROM LAB TO COUNTER: The Different Pharmacists' Profiles And Their Constant Contribution To Global Health".

In 2016, in the General Assembly celebrated during the 62nd IPSF World Congress in Harare, Zimbabwe, the Asociación de Estudiantes de Farmacia de la República Argentina (AEFRA) was chosen by the official delegates from all the participating countries (by unanimous vote) to host the 64th IPSF World Congress, to be held in 2018 in Mendoza city.

This accomplishment means an enormous improvement for the pharmacy students from our country and from the southamerican region. Since, it is the first time in IPSF history that this prestigious event will take place in South America, it will allow the internationalization of education and formation of the future pharmacists, which has vital importance considering the new challenges that health area will need to face. In addition, it will be an event where the international cooperation will be promoted as the keystone of any solution, as well as the innovation in science, industry and drug management.
