The Square Alumni Foundation works with the universities who select students who are in need of support.
In this way, we can use the collective resources of UK pharmacists to support pharmacy education and help to improve health care in sub-Saharan Africa.

Understanding how to use the knowledge and skills to benefit patients
Helping develop the judgement essential for a practicing health care professional
Access to pharmaceutical knowledge from around the world
