The legal status of the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists has changed to a not-for-profit organisation (AISBL).
The milestone in the history of the association was revealed at EAHP’s annual General Assembly, chaired by president Roberto Frontini, from 2-5 June.
The ‘new’ EAHP AISBL consists of 31 member associations of hospital pharmacists from different European countries sharing the same goals of developing and establishing a common hospital pharmacy policy in Europe.
The European Association of Hospital Pharmacists was founded on 6 March 1972, when the representatives of six European countries signed the first Statutes of the EAHP, in The Hague, The Netherlands.
EAHP membership is open to countries belonging to the Council of Europe. EAHP’s headquarters is located in Brussels, Belgium, from where the EAHP fosters its efforts at EU level.
