ISoP Chapters - Africa


As Pharmacovigilance is slowly increasing in the region, we have taken the initiative to solidify and standardize the Pharmacovigilance regulations through the implementation of new regulations and to enhance the Pharmacovigilance practice in the area.

The Middle East Pharmacovigilance chapter is recommended in order to harmonize Pharmacovigilance practices, regulations between all the Arab countries.

The chapter will commit to join forces with the Ministry of Health in the Middle East towards the execution of and compliance with the new Arab guidelines.

The chapter will have the mission to utilize the existing strengths on academic and health industry levels to enhance Pharmacovigilance and to establish the highest international standards in the region.
