Pharmacovigilance is the science and practice of detecting, assessing, determining and preventing adverse drug effects and other drug-related safety issues. A major objective of pharmacovigilance is to provide timely information about the safety of health products, especially to patients, doctors, and the general public, that promotes the safe and effective use of health products.
