Publishing history

On April 9, 1949 Govi-Verlag was founded by Dr. Hans Meyer and Josef von Fisenne founded. The ABDA - Federal Association of German Pharmacists' Associations , in the development of which both were significantly involved, should be supported by its own publishing house and an associated newspaper. The publishing house has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of ABDA since 1953. Unfortunately, no one can say for sure where the unusual name "Govi" comes from. Presumably, "Govi" is derived from the second family name of the Fisennes. These have been nicknamed "de Gouvy" since the end of the 15th century. Gouvy and Fisenne are also the names of two localities in the Belgian Ardennes.

On July 1, 2016, Govi-Verlag was merged with Werbe- und Vertriebsgesellschaft Deutscher Apotheker mbH (WuV) and the IT / EDP and technical services divisions of VGDA - Verwaltungsgesellschaft Deutscher Apotheker mbH to form Avoxa - Mediengruppe Deutscher Apotheker GmbH.
