2017 JOPPP Conference on Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice Research

14th-16th July 2017

The 1st JOPPP Conference on Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice Research will be 
held at the University of Reading Malaysia Campus, Johor, Malaysia

Conference Convenor: Dr. Zaheer-Ud-Din Babar, Editor-in-Chief Journal of 
Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice

This will be a high profile event to showcase global pharmaceutical policy 
research and to highlight research leading to policy development.

Background:

Pharmaceutical policy and practice research deals with the issues related to 
medicines regulation, access and use. It also addresses questions about how and 
why people access pharmacy services; how much pharmaceutical care costs; and 
what happens to patients when they use these services.

Appropriate research into pharmaceutical policy can produce real benefits for 
both the use of medicines and resource allocation for medicines. Publishing the 
research, however, in an appropriate, high impact forum is a crucial component 
for initiating policy benefits. It not only informs the readership about the 
research process but also has a significant impact on public health and 
nurtures further inquiry.

In this context, the Journal of Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice (JoPPP) was 
launched to disseminate empirical research findings, with the goal that people 
everywhere have access to medicines they need and use them rationally. The main 
aim of JoPPP is to promote pharmaceutical policy research from low and middle 
income countries - a job which the journal has done well. JoPPP has provided 
opportunity and support to emerging researchers with 30-40% of the contributors 
being first time authors. The journal has published studies on the 
pharmaceutical situation in countries where little or no pharmaceutical 
literature is available e.g. Slovenia, Macedonia and Afghanistan. The scope and 
coverage now also includes high income economies. JoPPP was commended by the 
World Health Organisation (WHO) and its policy impact is evident from the 
published studies.

Aim

The 1st JoPPP Conference on Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice will be held in 
July 2017 to build on the Journal's work and to set the future global agenda 
for evidence informed pharmaceutical policy research.
