What is Pharmacovigilance
It is internationally defined as the science that is responsible for the detection, evaluation, understanding, and prevention of adverse events, suspected adverse reactions, adverse reactions, events allegedly attributable to vaccination or immunization, or any other safety problem related to the use of medicines and vaccines. *
Its implementation is of great importance because it is one of the public health activities and a key tool to ensure the quality, safety, and efficacy of medicines. Therefore, it is an activity with shared responsibility and mandatory character, in which the National Health System, health professionals, institutions, the Pharmaceutical Industry, distributors, marketers, and patients participate.
In this way, in Apotex® Pharmacovigilance plays a significant role, since it is thanks to it and our personnel responsible for carrying it out, that we can detect, evaluate, understand and prevent the adverse events of our products.
