The capsule magazine is an electronic magazine that targets pharmacists, especially in Kuwait. It covers topics like drug updates, drug interactions, drug discovery and development, antibiotic resistance and many more interesting topics that can help expand a pharmacist's scope of knowledge. It is published by a team of pharmacists volunteering from the Capital region of Ministry of Health, Kuwait. We are a non-profitable organization and our aim is to benefit other pharmacists in our field. We also aim to develop the quality and safety culture among pharmacists and pharmacy technicians working in the region.
