The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA) is a global non-profit, non-governmental organization representing research – based pharmaceutical associations and companies in both developed and developing countries.
- IFPMA represents over 50 national associations from around the world
- IFPMA represents over 20 global research-based pharmaceutical companies that engage in medical and biopharmaceutical research in order to benefit patients and support high-quality patient care
The ethical promotion of prescription medicines is vital to the pharmaceutical industry’s mission of helping patients by discovering, developing and promoting new medicines.
Ethical practices should apply not only to the promotion of medicines but more broadly to all interactions with the healthcare community.
