AFSPA is the voice of mutual community pharmacy in Australia.

Friendly Society Pharmacies are owned and operated by not-for-profit Friendly Societies rather than pharmacists.

Since the 1830s, a time well before universal healthcare, Friendly Societies have provided access to good quality and affordable healthcare to their members and the pharmacies have supported their communities since the first one was established in Sydney in 1847.

With a long history of operating as social enterprises, Friendly Societies are proud to be the longest, continuous operators of the practice of pharmacy in Australia. †

Friendly Society Pharmacies are community pharmacies owned by not-for-profit Friendly Societies rather than pharmacists. They have provided quality and affordable medicines to members since 1847.
