Welcome to Nepal Pharmaceutical Association (NPA)
The history of Nepal Pharmaceutical Association (NPA) goes back to 1972 A.D. (2028 BS) when it was initiated in a small room of Banaspati Bibhag by a group of people involved with pharmaceutical and medicinal plants. A five member ad hoc committee was formed to proceed with the formation of the association with a total of 27 members, including 14 pharmacists, under the presidency of Dr Purosattam Narayan Suwal.
In its glorious 41 years, NPA has organized several programs and has been actively involved in almost all the programs held with the objective of development of this sector.
One of the significant achievements of NPA has been the formation of Nepal Pharmacy Council in 2000 A.D. (2058 BS), which gave a distinct recognition to the pharmacy profession. With its proud history, NPA has now more than 800 members from different fields of pharmaceuticals and medicinal plants.
To expand the activities in different part of the country, NPA has formed two chapters (Kaski and Lumbini).
