UBAYA’s Centre for Medicine Information and Pharmaceutical Care (PIOLK) was established in 1999, in collaboration with the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom, and with support from the British Council Higher Education Link (HEL). The goal of the centre is to become a resource and training outpost that promotes active and passive provision of pharmaceutical information, and a research facility that serves the health industry, the general public and other educational institutions.
The centre provides the latest information on recently developed pharmaceutical drugs, their mechanism of action, and their relevance to therapy via journals, articles and editorial pieces contributed to by leading experts within the health industry. The research programme initiated by the centre focuses on key areas of pharmacology such as; pharmaceutical science-technology, industrial pharmacy, cosmetology and the correct use of medicines. As Indonesians’ accessibility to modern medicine increases, there is ever greater potential for Research and Development on drug formulation, as well as misuse, in the form of over- prescriptions and overdoses deeming such research vital.
The facilities at the PIOLK caters to seminars with leading pharmaceutical experts to present invaluable knowledge on the most up-to-date topics that affect Indonesia’s health sector.

The centre shifts towards better quality standards in its publications and research and a greater emphasis on patient care. This demonstrates UBAYA’s commitment to implementing initiatives that will produce a new breed of pharmacists in Indonesia.
