The UAE, almost a net importer of pharmaceutical products, meets 90 per cent of the pharmaceutical market demand through imports, according to organisers of the 14th Dubai International Pharmaceutical and Technologies Conference and Exhibition (Duphat).

This medical, scientific, and educational event scheduled from March 29 to 31 2009 at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, has gained the support of local regional and international professional and educational institutions in the pharmaceutical industry.

They include American Society of Health System Pharmacists, European Federation for Pharmaceutical Sciences, European Society of Clinical Pharmacists, and Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia.

The International Association of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Clinical Toxicology, Canadian Pharmacists Association, International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology, Utrecht University, The Netherlands, European Society of Oncology Pharmacy, and Monash University are also actively involved in the organisation of Duphat. This high profile scientific gathering will enable participants to interact with the professionals in pharmacy science and providing continuing medical education.
