Facilitating Membership in Developing Countries

In accordance with the globalization of health education and research, e.g., through world health programs such as the Health InterNetwork, there is an ongoing effort to improve worldwide access to health information of high quality. ACCP enjoys collegial ties within the global clinical pharmacology community and proudly boasts a substantial number of international members, including colleagues from developing countries who take advantage of ACCP's relevant educational programs and publications. A dues structure has been established for Members from developing countries categorized as low income or lower middle income by the World Bank and those fees are adjusted according to current economic conditions that are updated annually by the World Bank. This fee structure is economically feasible for ACCP by using electronic communications and documents, which are accessed by members in developing countries via the Members-only area of the College's website. Qualifications and requirements for membership can be found in the application materials. For those of you with qualified colleagues working in countries with developing economies, you can help advance the international clinical pharmacology community by promoting membership in ACCP.
