3rd ASoP Conference

African Society of Pharmacovigilance Conference

Theme: Pharmacovigilance in Africa: Successes, best practices, Innovations and Lessons Learned

We are very pleased to welcome you all to the ASoP 2016 Conference, organized by the Kenya Pharmacy and Poisons Board-Pharmacovigilance Center and other stakeholders that will take place in Mombasa, Kenya.

The use of a wide variety of essential medicines and health technologies in Africa creates the need for robust pharmacovigilance systems to promote patient safety across the continent. With regional variations in the status of pharmacovigilance systems, collaboration among African countries is essential, as it promotes strengthening of pharmacovigilance through sharing of lessons learned, mutual exchange of best practices and scale up with a goal of  ensuring patient safety.

The African Society of Pharmacovigilance (ASoP) was launched during the 32nd WHO meeting in Rabat, Morocco in November 2009, where representatives from 16 African nations met to discuss a pharmacovigilance society for African professionals. Subsequently, ASoP became the African Chapter of the International Society of Pharmacovigilance (ISoP) during the 10th ISoP Annual Meeting in November 2010 in Accra, Ghana.

The main objectives of the African Chapter of ISoP are to develop and foster Pharmacovigilance Interventions in African countries and to promote a regular exchange of information on Pharmacovigilance issues through meetings, workshops, bulletins and trainings.

Additionally, In May 2014, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) Agency through its African Medicines Regulatory Harmonization (AMRH) Programme designated 11 Regional Centres of Regulatory Excellence (RCOREs) in eight different functions as part of its mandate to strengthen regulatory capacity development in Africa.  There are two RCORES in Pharmacovigilance- the Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB), Kenya and WHO-CC in Ghana. RCOREs are institutions with specific academic and technical regulatory science expertise and training capabilities capable of producing regulatory workforce in Africa. The Kenya PPB is also the lead country for Pharmacovigilance and Post Marketing Surveillance within the EAC- Medicines Regulatory Harmonization agenda.

The 3rd Annual ASoP conference will take place in Mombasa, Kenya from Wednesday 7th December to Friday 9th December 2016under the leadership of Pharmacy and Poisons Board which is an RCORE in Pharmacovigilance. The main focus will be Pharmacovigilance in Africa:  Successes, best practices, Innovations and Lessons Learned with the following sub themes:
