Welcome Message from Congress Chair

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to welcome you to the Oman International Pharmacy Congress and Exhibition in Sultanate of Oman, from 14th – 16th January 2024, at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC), in the most beautiful downtown Muscat.

The theme of this congress is “Shaping the Future of Pharmaceutical Services” focusing on the role of the pharmacist in a multidisciplinary team in different specialties. Globally, policy makers, hospital pharmacists, and supply chain specialists will come together and collaborate to further shape our profession’s future — one in which new opportunities, responsibilities, and skill sets for hospital pharmacists, regulatory experts, and supply chain specialists will emerge!

The main messages and focus areas of the congress will be delivered and discussed through keynote lectures, seminars, workshops, interactive sessions and symposia covering the following main areas:

  • A Multidisciplinary Approach to Managing Drug Shortages
  • Empowering & Shaping the Future of Pharmacy Education
  • Strategies for Ensuring Safe and Effective Usage of Interchangeable Biosimilars
  • Combating Non-Communicable Diseases in Primary Health Care
  • Pharmacotherapy updates: Latest advances in Drug Therapy / Genomics
  • Digital Transformation of Pharmacy Services: Opportunities and Challenges
  • Latest trends in Antimicrobial Management

The International Pharmacy Congress will be accredited by the Oman Medical Specialty Board (OMSB) and will work in collaboration with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), National Association for Primary Care (UK) and Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) which ensures greater access to well-regarded experts and global current practice topics. The Congress is also supported by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), the Institute of Safe Medications Practices (ISMP) USA and Canada.

Muscat, the capital of Sultanate of Oman, is not only known for its serenity and architecture but also for its culture, traditions, and modernization, surrounded by the mountains, desert and serene beaches. The city is a perfect blend of the old and new, a demonstration to Oman’s spirit of harmony, progress, and cordiality.

Here you will have the opportunity to experience the diverse culture and witness the transformation as Oman is undergoing a period of dynamic change, shaping a future with progress, innovation, and sustainable development in line with the goals of Oman Vision 2040. It will be a perfect setting for discussions and collaborations towards the future of pharmacy and healthcare.

We look forward to meet you at the Oman International Pharmacy Congress and Exhibition, and in the meantime, we are working hard to create a professional atmosphere to enhance your experience learning, networking, and thinking together. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all individuals, organisations, directorates and ministries for their contribution and continuous support in making this event successful.

See you all in Muscat.
