Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa

The history of the South African Pharmaceutical Association (PSSA) dates back to 1885, when a team of 7 pharmacists met in King Williamstown.

Since the meeting, branches were formed across the country and various pharmaceutical societies were developed. However, it wasn’t until the year 1946 that the Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa (PPSA) was formed, as the result of the amalgamation of all the societies.

Today, the PSSA’s vision and mission is to be the countries leader of the pharmacy profession, as well as to provide support for the pharmacy profession by way of improving the use of medication and greater patient care.
