The Hong Kong Association of the Pharmaceutical Industry was formed in 1968. Currently we have 41 full members which are all international companies engaged in the research and development of pharmaceuticals including the world's top 20. Our member companies provide over 70% of the prescription medicines in Hong Kong.
The Association was formed to provide maximum information on all matters relating to the Hong Kong pharmaceutical market, to its members. Another major role of the Association is to improve the relationship between our member companies and the government, all healthcare related societies and the community. We also provide suggestions on healthcare policies to improve the overall well being of Hong Kong people.
The Association has actively participated in events of the health community and presented its views to the public on different healthcare issues such as Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme, Pharmacy and Poisons (Amendment) Ordinance 2015 and various pharmaceutical regulations.
