- In 2010 the Pharmaceutical Association of Mauritius delayed its celebration of the Commonwealth Pharmacist Day due to the General Elections being held in Mauritius and of the Football World Cup at the same time. The celebrations were finally held on 7 August, under the chairmanship of Mr Sudhir Misri (as PAM President). The chief guest, Mrs Maya Hanoomanjee, the then Honorable Minister of Health, stated in her speech that she agreed to promulgate the Pharmacy Council Bill and to revisit the Pharmacy Act to bring it in line with other countries. The Commonwealth Pharmacists Day is celebrated every year on 16 June around over 40 Commonwealth countries.
