The Ghana National Chamber of Pharmacy(GNCoP), complying with the provision of sections 27 and 28 of the Companies Act 1963, registered with the Registrar-General’s Department. Until recently, the pharmaceutical industry in the country was saddled with many splinter groupings, each pursuing its own narrow agenda without the requisite harmonization of ideas to serve the good of the industry as a whole. Learning from the international best practices led to the establishment of the Chamber.
The Ghana National Chamber of Pharmacy(GNCoP) is noted for its collaboration with all industry stakeholders and its ability to protect and pursue the collective needs and interests of members in order to create a pharmaceutical industry that supports members and national development. The Chamber has positioned itself to serve its members from all segments of the pharmaceutical industry, namely local manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, practitioners/ consultants, other stakeholders from the academia and other training institutions.
The Chamber aspires to be a research hub that seeks to collect, analyse and interpret practical industry data to inform, impact and influence policy, law and regulation. The Chamber is also an advocacy voice that seeks to speak authoritatively and act proactively on all national issues that are likely to affect the pharmaceutical industry.
