Pharmacist day is observed across the world on September 25. The World Pharmacists Day is celebrated by Pharmacists to promote their commitment to organise activities that promote and advocate for the role of the pharmacist in improving health in all parts of the world.
Many people along with students wonder why Pharmacist Day is celebrated on September 25? The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), the global federation of national associations of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists, came into existence on September 25, 1912. The FIP Council in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2009 suggested to observe the Pharmacist Day on September 25 because on this day FIP came into existence. Hence, we celebrate World Pharmacist Day on September 25.
