Vaccines and Medicines Utilization and
Safety Monitoring Systems
The Vaccines and Medicines Utilization and Safety Surveillance is a three-year project funded by the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP2) programme supported by the European Union.
Access to pharmaceuticals in Africa is on the rise especially with the increase in Global efforts and resources targeting high burden diseases in developing countries. However weak national regulatory capacity to monitor safety, quality and eficacy of registered and deployed pharmaceuticals remains. This coupled with non-existent reporting behaviour drug consumers renders the situation worse.
There is much needed strengthening of resources directed at monitoring of safety and utilisation of pharmaceuticals to match the increasing resources targeted at the development and availing of vaccine and medicinal products for high burden diseases in African countries.
