Understanding Pharmacovigilance

Pharma has been derived from a Greek term ‘Pharmakon’ which means ‘drug’ and Vigilance is derived from Latin term ‘vigilare’ which means ‘to keep watch’. So, Pharmacovigilance as a combined term means “to keep a watch over the functioning of a drug”. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines Pharmacovigilance (PV) as the science and activities relating to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or any other drug-related problem.
