A major article gives an overview of the WHO Programme and the combined work of its five Collaborating Centres. There is news from around the pharmacovigilance world: India, Chile, Liberia, anniversaries for the UK Yellow Card scheme and the European Medicines Agency, and new WHO Programme member Bangladesh. New books include an important publication on medicines for women. The edition begins with a message from UMC Director Marie Lindquist on story-telling and how to improve the quality of data about medicines safety.
