SAHPRA visits universities

KwaZulu-Natal, 12 September 2022 – SAHPRA is planning on visiting universities that offer studies relating to pharmacy and medicines. These visits will create an awareness about SAHPRA to students.  Its mandate and its roles and responsibilities include educating the students about the Authority’s programmes.

There will also be a focus on Community Service (Comserv) pharmacists, that SAHPRA as an entity can host, through the National Department of Health (NDoH) in the future. These events are part of SAHPRA’s Human Resources (HR) drive.

On 12 September 2022, SAHPRA visited the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), Westville campus and addressed approximately 500 students. The Executive Manager: HR and Senior Manager: inspectorate and Regulatory Compliance addressed the students, and this was followed by a Question and Answer (Q&A) session. The Professor heading the Pharmacy Faculty and lecturers were part of the session. Students were attentive and engaged in robust discussions during the session.
