The Mission

Promote health and to serve society as the profession responsible for the safe use of medication, pharmaceutical devices and services towards a desired therapeutic end. The organization has been served by a succession of dedicated and committed presidents and through the years its members have worked assiduously in many areas:


It spearheaded the establishment of a School of Pharmacy at the College of Arts, Science and Technology, (now the University of Technology) in 1961. This brought to an end the former apprenticeship system.


The Society established regional and international links, being admitted into the membership of similar organizations in Great Britain and other Commonwealth countries, the Caribbean and Latin America.


The PSJ negotiated through two political administrations, to ensure that pharmacists had large representation on the Pharmacy Council, formed in 1974, and which replaced the Drugs and Poisons Control Board.


It staged conventions during the 1960s and 1970s and put on Continuing Education Seminars, which are still held. The annual National Retreat, which began in 1990, has now become a focus point for pharmacists, as well as others in the industry.


The Society established a National Pharmacy Week Programme which brings to the public attention aspects of the pharmacy profession. It also allows pharmacists to educate the public on proper use of drugs.

Continuous Support

The Society seeks to inform and educate its members by hosting Continuing Education Seminars and our Annual Retreat held in June of each year. We also address issues of national importance as it relates to pharmaceuticals and the National Health Care Delivery Plan of the Government.
