The Asia for Safe Handling of Cytotoxic Drugs Interest Group was formed in 2004 in response to Asia pharmacists’ concerns over the safe handling of cytotoxic drugs in their workplaces.

While in some places there may already be protocols, procedures or guidelines for safe handlings, there has not been a common platform for us in Asia to share experience and ‘best practices’. is the only website in Asia designed to enhance the practice and communication amongst us.


Mission Statement

Our aim is to provide evidence-based guidelines on safe handling procedures for all those working with cytotoxic drugs in Asia and subsequently to raise the practice standard in our country.


To help our colleagues to acquire the knowledge and skills in the safe handling of cytotoxics in Asia.
