From one professional to another

Tools national regulatory authorities can rely on to quickly detect potential safety problems in their populations and take action when needed.

When a medicine or vaccine first comes to market, there is always a risk that new side effects may come to light after they are introduced to the wider population. Strong safety monitoring systems are needed to alert regulators to signs of possible harm. 

As the WHO Collaborating Centre for International Drug Monitoring, we work with countries around the world to build up national pharmacovigilance systems in line with their needs. With our tools even those with the most limited resources can boost both the volume and quality of reporting and the analysis of adverse event data for regulatory decisions.

What’s more, by sharing data with other countries through VigiBase, the world’s largest database of adverse event reports, they contribute to strengthening patient safety globally.

Be alert, vigilant and quick to react

After a medicine or vaccine is approved, they still need to be monitored for safety. VigiFlow supports the collection and processing of adverse event reports that are critical for a national pharmacovigilance system to function properly.
