AEFRA (Argentine Republic Pharmacy Students’ Association) is a non-governmental organization for pharmacy students, founded in 2012 in San Luis. We are currently based all over the country, and we are dedicated to lead basic processes for the academic and professional development to all our members, through educational, social and cultural activities, seeking to benefit the national pharmaceutical community and the population in general.
We think AEFRA’s is one of a kind association. If you are wondering why, the answer is very simple: we, the Argentinian, are spontaneous, outgoing, supportive, and we have this unique feature – we always do whatever we really want (even if we don’t have the minimal idea of what we are doing!). This particular and rare feature, which sometimes is confused with stubbornness, always pushed us forward to face all the dreams and challenges along the way in our short life as an association. A convincing proof of this, is that we as a 4-year old association, organized 4 National Congresses, the 9th Pan American Regional Symposium, 3 AEFRA’s Solidary Programmes, the Students and Young Pharmacists’ Package for FIP World Congress 2016, and soon in 2018, we will be proud of hosting the 64th IPSF World Congress. In addition, we got the IPSF Full membership in 2015, and won several grants as the Best New Association in the world in 2015, Best Regional Association two years in a row (2015- 2016), and lastly Best Regional Contact Person and Best regional SEO in 2016. All of these achievements have been possible thanks to our strong will and sacrifice to move forward above all obstacles and always with the strongest passion and love for pharmacy that you will ever find in anyone. Therefore, if you meet an AEFRA member sometime, you will get to know a rare mixed of steel spirit, unbreakable will, giant heart and passionate pharmacy lover, with our most delighting feature – wherever we are, we are always going to bring joy and happiness to all our friends and partners. Wishful that one day you could visit us and know our wonderful country, we invite you to come to Mendoza in 2018 to taste the most delicious wine and beautiful landscapes. There you will learn about pharmacy innovation and enroll to the global improvement of pharmacy that IPSF and AEFRA both support since their creation.
