Adis involved in a breakthrough pharmacovigilance summit

Adis is working in partnership with the Centre Anti Poison et de Pharmacovigilance du Maroc to host a special pharmacovigilance event for Arabic-speaking countries.

Adis is pleased to announce its involvement in an upcoming pharmacovigilance event, being hosted by the Centre Anti Poison et de Pharmacovigilance du Maroc (CAPM).

The summit, organized by CAPM in association with the Moroccan Society of Pharmacovigilance (SMPV), the Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS), and the International Society of Pharmacovigilance (ISoP) will take place on 22-26 September 2014, and it is the first event of its kind in the region.

Morocco was the first Arabic country to join the International Pharmacovigilance Programme lead by WHO, and of the 22 countries belonging to the Arab League, 40% are currently official members. However, Arab countries representation in Vigibase amounts to only 0.4% of all individual case reports.

The purpose of this meeting is to interact, exchange information, implement and reinforce national pharmacovigilance activities in Arabic countries and define an action plan for its development.
