At the end of this session, participants will:

1. Learn about the FIP-UNESCO UNITWIN Programme and the value of educational partnerships
2. Share expressions of interest to join new FIP-UNESCO UNITWIN centres for excellence at their regions
3. Discuss the way forward for the establishment of an African-wide association of schools of pharmacy
