The Asian Association of Schools of Pharmacy (AASP) serves as a platform for the exchange of ideas and strategies in pharmacy education as well as to foster research collaborations among the member pharmacy schools in Asia. Among the activities of AASP there are the biennial Education/Practice/Scientific Conference which has been held since 2004, and Pharmacy Deans Forum which aims to address current issues in pharmacy education in Asia that Pharmacy Deans, the Faculty and the academic institutions are confronted with. Both the Conference and the Pharmacy Deans Forum are held biennially, but in alternate years.
