This Pharmacovigilance (PV) Toolkit is a collection of resources and information needed for the practice of pharmacovigilance. The main aim of its development is to ensure that PV practitioners in low- and middle-income countries get access to information on the processes and activities involved in PV from a trusted source. The Toolkit contents are endorsed by the WHO Advisory Committee on the Safety of Medicinal Products after the original text has been written and reviewed by global experts.
In addition to this website, the Toolkit is available on USB drives in a similar format to this website, for use in areas with poor internet connectivity. The Toolkit is currently available in English, and efforts are underway to have it translated into other languages, although this is dependent on availability of volunteers and/or funding. The Toolkit will be reviewed periodically to ensure that it is abreast with developments in PV.
The Toolkit Management Team is keen to have your feedback such as what you think can be added, removed or modified in order to make its use more beneficial.
Development of the PV Toolkit was supported by a generous grant from the Global Fund..
