Here comes the conference edition of the journal for UNITY 2015 (88th PSN Conference, International Conference Centre, Abuja, Nov 9th to 14th 2015). We are all welcome to Abuja, capital city of Nigeria.

The Cover story in this edition is on Pharmacy and the Sustained Development Goals (SDGs). Pharmacists are implored to incorporate the health targets of the SDGs into their various practices.

Two Viewpoints are presented this time around; one is focused on pharmaceutical public health while the other is on projected gains of chain pharmacies.

The Healthy Living segment looks at diet and exercise and I believe that you will gain one or two things from the write up.

As usual, the Original research section is not left out. Interesting articles for your consumption are presented along with 2 reprints from the last edition necessitated because of ‘printer’s demon’.

As has been done for a number of years now, the abstracts for presentation at the poster session during the conference are compiled in this edition for easy access.

The Young Pharmacist Group – Nigeria (YPG-N) did us proud during the last FIP which held in Dusseldorf, Germany producing two officers namely Pharm. Seun Omobo as Chairman of the Young Pharmacists Group (YPG) of FIP and Pharm. Tosin Adeyemi as Project Director.

The CPC under the leadership of Pharm. Gbenga Falabi,MAW  and the LOC under the leadership of Pharm. Superior Atumen have promised us an entertaining and educative experience at this conference and I know they will deliver so prepare to participate maximally.

Enjoy reading and have a good conference.
