Guideines on Continuing Professional Development in Pharmacy

The Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB) was established as a regulatory authority under the Pharmacy and Poisons Act, Cap 244, and began operations on the 1st of May 1957. It was established as a body corporate under section 3(6) of the Pharmacy and Poisons Act (Legal Notice No. 11 of 1993) with the responsibility of regulating the practice of pharmacy by pharmacists, the manufacture, trade in drugs and poisons. In 2002, under Legal Notice No. 61, it widened its scope to include pharmaceutical technologists' regulation and accreditation of professional pharmacy degree and diploma programs.

The Pharmacy and Poisons Act empowers the Board to regulate pharmacy education/training and practice in Kenya. Within the Board, pharmacy professionals' regulation is managed by the Continuing Professional Development Division and Accreditation, under the Directorate of Pharmacy Practice and Regulation of Training. The vision statement of the Board is to be a global leader in promoting and protecting public health. To this end, the Board commits to promoting pharmacy practice that will provide the highest attainable standards of healthcare. The Board enhances this by assuring and advancing quality in pharmacy education, practice, and CPD throughout pharmacists' and pharmaceutical technologists' active careers.
