Pharmaceutical science is growing fastly throughout the world. Unfortunately, our contribution to the development of pharmaceutical sector is lesser. United efforts are required to develop pharmacy profession with our own initiation.
Immense unemployed pharmacists with Diploma, Degree and Post graduation are trying hard to bloom their career. At the same time medicines are handling through unqualified hands. The multiple faces of pharmacy profession such as manufacturing, quality assurance, storage, dispensing, and educational institutions need vast improvement so as to comply with the international standards.
