BEM Keluarga Farmasi (BEM Kemafar) Universitas Padjadjaran kembali mengirimkan official delegates yaitu Dinar Azzahra dan Farra Nadya dalam The 58th World Congress yang diselenggarakan oleh International Pharmaceutical Student Federation (IPSF) di Hurghada, Mesir pada tanggal 1-11 Agustus 2012. International Pharmaceutical Student Federation (IPSF) adalah organisasi advokasi internasional untuk mahasiswa farmasi dunia yang bertujuan untuk meningkatkan kesehatan masyarakat dunia yang beranggotakan lebih dari 350.000 mahasiswa dan lulusan muda farmasi di 84 negara di seluruh dunia termasuk Indonesia yang diwakili oleh Ismafarsi sebagai full member dan beberapa Member in Associaton/MiA, termasuk diantaranya Unpad yang telah menjadi MiA sejak tahun 2005.

Selama mengikuti kegiatan tersebut, delegasi Unpad atas nama BEM KEMAFAR Unpad sebagai MiA mengikuti General Assembly atau sejenis sidang yang merupakan pemegang keputusan tertinggi di IPSF. Dalam General Assembly, dibahas dan diputuskan mengenai pembaharuan peraturan-peraturan dalam IPSF, pemilihan eksekutif termasuk diantaranya presiden IPSF baru untuk periode kepengurusan 2012-2013, pemilihan tuan rumah World Congress selanjutnya, penerimaan anggota baru IPSF, dan lain-lain. Di kongres ini, terpilih Radek Mitura dari Polandia sebagai Presiden IPSF baru serta Portugal sebagai tuan rumah IPSF World Congress 2014. Beberapa asosiasi pun resmi menjadi anggota baru IPSF, diantaranya Palestina sebagai Member in Association dan Ghana sebagai Full Member.

Tak hanya sidang saja, berbagai macam workshop yang sangat substansial dan esensial bagi kemajuan mahasiswa farmasi pun diberikan, diantaranya adalah IPSF in Your  Corner yang mendiskusikan tentang pelaksanaan event Pharmacy Profession Awareness Campaign/PPAC di kawasan Asia Pasifik. “Senang sekali dalam workshop ini kami memiliki kesempatan bertukar ide dengan mahasiswa Australia yang lebih dulu dan sukses mengadakan event kampanye PPAC ini seperti kampanye penggunaan antibiotik. Kampanye PPAC ini bertujuan agar masyarakat lebih menyadari peran farmasis maupun apoteker sehingga masyarakat bisa lebih memanfaatkan keberadaan profesi kefarmasian dalam penggunaan obat-obatan secara tepat dan rasional” papar Dinar. Selain workshop, terdapat juga educational and scientific symposium yang menghadirkan pembicara internasional dari Canada, USA, Saudi Arabia, Mesir, dan Italia.

Pada kongres ini, delegasi juga mempresentasikan Universitas Padjadjaran di hadapan eksekutif dan juga negara-negara anggota IPSF untuk menjadi tuan rumah sidang regional atau Asia Pasific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2014. Walaupun akhirnya tuan rumah APPS 2014 jatuh pada negara Singapura, namun setidaknya presentasi ini mampu membawa dan mengenalkan Indonesia dan Unpad di dunia internasional. Atas dukungan dari Dekan beserta jajajarannya di Fakultas Farmasi Unpad, Universitas Padjadjaran, dan PT Kimia Farma, seluruh kegiatan pendelegasian ini alhamdulillah dapat berjalan lancar. Semoga pendelegasian World Congress ini menjadi salah satu cara yang mendukung Universitas Padjadjaran menuju World Class University dan meningkatkan kualitas mahasiswa farmasi Unpad agar menjadi farmasis berkualitas internasional.

Eventhough host of APPS 2014 went to Singapura because Indonesia had already held on APPS on 2011 in Yogyakarta, but this presentation could bring and introduce Indonesia, especially Unpad in the world. Million thanks are addressed to Dean and the executives of Faculty of Pharmacy Unpad, Universitas Padjadjaran, and PT.
