Founded in 2005, Korea Institute for Pharmaceutical Policy Affairs, KIPPA, is a non-profit, public foundation, approved by the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare. The institute is contributed by three relevant parties, the Korean Pharmaceutical Association (KPA), the Korea Pharmaceutical and Bio-Pharma Manufacturers Association (KBPMA), and the Korea Pharmaceutical Distribution Association (KPDA).
KIPPA is a leading research center, which aims to promote public health through the development of policy regarding the rational use of medicines, pharmacy education, pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical industry, and pharmaceutical supply and distribution. In particular, we begin to develop ‘a community pharmacy model as a health promotion center for community members’. We are collecting and analysing big data accordingly to develop pharmacy-based policies, which pursue maximised pharmacy practice for all the Koreans.
In consequence, KIPPA will consistently implement research tailored to the promotion of health in the nation and worldwide. We kindly ask for supports from our fellow pharmacists, public and associations.
If you have any further enquiries about the institute or research in English, please contact us via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
