Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria To Hold 88th National Conference in Abuja

The Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) will hold its 88th  National Conference ("UNITY 2015") in Abuja on Nov. 9 - Nov. 14.

Pharmacists from within and outside the country will be in attendance and the theme for this year is "Advancing Pharmacy Through Strategic Workplace Development in Practice Settings."

Pharm. Olumide Akintayo, the National President, PSN, who is also a member of the planning committee stressed that this year’s conference will address childhood killer diseases under the platform of PSN-PACFaH project (Pharmacist Society of Nigeria - Partnership for Advocacy in Child and Family Health) in Nigeria.

He said, the PSN-PACFaH project will make a special presentation on the progress in tackling childhood killer disease in the country and the way forward.

According to Akintayo, the vision of PSN- PACFaH is to see its advocacy work contribute to getting government and relevant stakeholders work in concert to stop deaths caused by treatable childhood killer diseases (pneumonia and diarrhoea) which account for the death of over 400,000 children (per annum) under the age of five years in the country.
