The 2019 international joint symposium of the 8 th Asia Pacific Pharmacy Education Network (APPEN)Conference in conjunction with the 2 nd Halal Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics (HPC)Conference is an annual program. The first joint symposium was held in Japan and organized by Josai University and Josai International University in 2018. In this year, this event will be held at 8-9 October 2019 in Surabaya, Indonesia and organized by Faculty of Pharmacy Universitas Airlangga in collaboration with Halal Center of Universitas Airlangga.
The Asia Pacific Pharmacy Education Network (APPEN) is a member-driven society of schools of pharmacy within the Asia Pacific region. The network was founded to enhance education and research in pharmacy and pharmaceuticals by establishing mutual and beneficial interrelationship among the society members. The member of the network stretches in a number of countries such as Indonesia (Airlangga University, Gadjah Mada University and Bandung Institute of Technology), Malaysia (Management & Science University, Universiti Sains Malaysia), Thailand (Chulalongkorn University and Burapha University), Philippines (University of the Philippines, University of Santo Tomas and University of the Immaculate) and Japan (Josai University and Josai International University). In 2019, the network aims to expand its collaboration by inviting Mahidol University Thailand and Universiti Brunei Darussalam into the team.
The advancement of technology and societal needs have influenced the way pharmacy is taught and practiced. It is therefore not surprising that innovation in teaching, improving students’ capabilities and managing educational institution becomes important subject of discussion. Therefore, finding the most effective and comprehensive approach is the holy grail in pharmacy education.
At the same time, development of halal pharmaceuticals and cosmeceuticals system in tandem with growing awareness towards halal concept cannot be disregarded. The requirement of halal pharmaceuticals and cosmeceuticals is underlined in the policy documents in a number of countries reflecting the potential and benefits of halal system.
Continuing the success of previous symposium, the 2019 International Joint Symposium strives towards enhancement of pharmacy education and recognition of halal pharmaceuticals and cosmeceuticals. The current symposium offers opportunity for synergy among the network institutions and dissemination of best practice in pharmacy education and halal system recognition. The word “synergy” highlights situation in which no party solves all, no size fits all and neither I nor you except us. The network which stretches across Asia Pacific is truly a great opportunity for establishing and sustaining such synergy.
