The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers’ (IFPW) role is to
its members and stakeholders advance the safe, efficient and continuous
to pharmaceuticals worldwide through the promotion of good distribution practices and services.
Although pharmaceutical wholesalers are, for the most
part, transparent to you as a patient or a consumer, they perform a vital role
in your everyday life. It is the pharmaceutical wholesaler that provides, at any
time and in any location, your pharmacist, your doctor and your hospital with
the medicines required to maintain your health.
Pharmaceutical wholesalers also provide and make available product, patient and
disease information systems to assist your medical professional team in managing
and curing the diseases that may encumber your health. For example, they provide
computer systems to pharmacists and doctors which aid in the detection of drug
interactions when a patient is taking more than one drug.
The pharmaceutical wholesaler is your primary link among the caring hands of
your pharmacist and doctor and the devoted efforts of pharmaceutical
manufacturers to increase the quality of your life. I invite you to view
our 2012 International Leadership Award video to learn more
about our industry and its leadership. You may also
