The unity of the pharmaceutical profession came about in 1920 when some aspirin tablets, quinine, and tincture of iodine imported from the US and sold in Manila were found to have disregarded standards of the Drug Law and the US Pharmacopeia.

A group of pharmacists conducted a series of meetings together with the then existing pharmaceutical organization, the Colegio Medico-Farmaceutico. At their next meeting on August 29, 1920, attended by the majority of the practicing pharmacists in Manila, the group decided to constitute an exclusive association of pharmacists.

Thus, the Association was born. A distinguished member-organization of the Federation of Asian Pharmaceutical Associations, the Philippine Pharmacists Association (PPhA) is also an affiliate member of the Federacion Internationale Pharmaceutique, The Hague Netherlands.

The PPhA was awarded by the PRC as the “Most Outstanding Accredited Professional Organization” in 1994.
