The Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society (MPS) is excited to announce that we are taking an active role in the World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) 2016 from 14th - 20 th November 2016.

We hope all pharmacy practitioners in Malaysia will do their part to support the events conducted nationwide by MPS via the Area Committees for this campaign.
