What is Pharmacovigilance?
Pharmacovigilance is defined by WHO as "the science and activities relating to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or any other medicine-related problem"
What is an adverse effect?
An adverse effect (or adverse reaction) is a response to a medicinal product which is noxious and unintended.
By reporting suspect adverse reactions you can help provide more information on the safety of medicines.
The reporting can be done by everyone, patients or healthcare professionals (doctors, pharmacists, nurses, etc.). Talk to your doctor or pharmacist or nurse to know how you can report a suspect adverse reaction or contact your Health Authorities or your Drug Agency.
