PvPI requests for feedback to improve the standard of monitoring medicine safety
PvPI requests for feedback to improve the standard of monitoring medicine safety, Pharmacovigilance programme of India ((PvPI)), recently request feedback to improve the standard of monitoring medicine safety in India.
The Pharmacovigilance Program of India (PvPI) was launched with a broad objective to safe guard the health of 1.27 billion people of India from unwanted effects/adverse drug reactions of medicines. Every year many people die due to adverse drug reactions (studies have cited drug side effects as the reason for 3.4% of hospital admissions, 3.7% hospital re admissions and 1.8% mortality in India).
A 1998 report estimated that 1,06,000 Americans die each year as a result of adverse reactions to prescription medications. It has become fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
Since there exist considerable social and economic consequences of adverse drug reactions PvPI is committed to spread awareness among all stakeholders of pharmacovigilance in India to bring them on a common platform to jointly establish a more inclusive robust adverse event monitoring and analysis system.
So far PvPI has started 202 ADR monitoring centers (AMCs) across India. The AMCs are dedicated in collection of ADRs and spreading awareness in health care professionals to report suspected ADRs.
We need your feedback to strengthen the programme and enable to improve our standard of monitoring medicine safety. Please spare few valuable minutes to provide your feedback through this online feedback form.
Your active participation to improve the drug safety in India is highly appreciated.
