According to WHO, Pharmacovigilance is a science deals with detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or any other drug-related problems. The idea of pharmacovigilance came up as a consequence of the so-called thalidomide tragedy in 1960.

After observing the Pharmacovigilance programme of our institution we found that health professionals lack knowledge about pharmacovigilance and problems of underreporting of adverse drug reactions was prevalent in institute. This study shows poor knowledge, attitude and practice of pharmacovigilance among medical Professionals, So there is urgent need to improve the awareness of Pharmacovigilance among the healthcare professionals. Adverse drug reactions reporting should be intensively taught at undergraduates level, during internship and then periodically thereafter through continuous education programs.
