Why pharmacovigilance is needed
All of us, from children to parents, friends and partners, will take medicines at some point in their lives. The aim of pharmacovigilance is the safer and more effective use of medicines for everyone.
It involves all activities that relate to detecting, assessing, understanding, managing and preventing adverse effects of medicines for individuals and populations.
