It was established in August 2008 after being approved during the 54th IPSF World Congress in Romania. The EMRO office is managed by the Regional Working Group (RWG), which consists of pharmacy students and graduates from the Eastern Mediterranean region.

The establishment of the IPSF EMRO gave us the opportunity to expand IPSF into the Eastern Mediterranean region and provide exposure about the spirit and activities of IPSF among pharmacy students.

The mission of IPSF EMRO is to achieve excellence in education, research and public service areas. The regional office provides superior and comprehensive educational opportunities through symposia, campaigns, and professional education.

IPSF-EMRO consists of 19 associations in 14 countries.
