ISHP’s member societies, including AIHP, promote scholarly research and writing about the history of pharmacy. The Congress serves as a forum for research presentations and discussions about the history of pharmacy in an international context. The International Society was last held in the United States in 1983.

The 2019 International Congress is underwritten by a generous grant from the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP).
