On behalf of the World Self Medication Industry Board, the Australian Self Medication Industry (ASMI) and the New Zealand Self Medication Industry (NZSMI), we are pleased to invite you to join us for the World Self Medication General Assembly 2017.

The General Assembly will be held at the International Conference Centre in beautiful Sydney, New South Wales, Australia from the 17 – 19 October 2017. ‘The Health Economic Value of Self Care’ is the overriding theme of the General Assembly and our program which has been created by the host organisations in conjunction with the WSMI board includes a mixture of keynote presentations and oral presentations. There will be ample opportunity for discussion, debate and networking with industry colleagues from around the world. Presentations will address accessibility of self-medication for consumers, affordability of medicines, consumer empowerment and value of self-care and self-medication.

Sydney provides a wonderful destination for this General Assembly with the city being built around one of the largest harbours in the world along miles of golden beaches. Located just minutes away from the General Assembly Venue include the famous landmarks of Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney’s Darling Harbour Precinct.

We can’t wait to see you in Sydney in 2017!
