Change the world




PEPSA is the Port Elizabeth Pharmaceutical Students Association. We are the student’s direct link to the South African Pharmacy Students’ Federation (SAPSF) and the Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa (PSSA).

Our main goal is to keep the Pharmacy Students of NMMU informed of the latest events unfolding in the Pharmacy profession and provide a means for the students to reach out to the community via projects we arrange.
