The International Society of Pharmacovigilance (ISoP) and UMC collaborate in educational initiatives to strengthen pharmacovigilance in Asia and in Latin America.
UMC and ISoP have different and complementary constituencies, bringing together national pharmacovigilance expertise with the broader concerns of industry and academia. They have a common interest in promoting scientific research and good practice. Since 2014, the two organisations have run joint training events, aimed at improving patient safety in Asia and Latin America.
The sixth pharmacovigilance training course jointly organised by ISoP and UMC will take place on 24-26 September 2018 in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Past UMC-ISoP courses have been held in the Philippines in 2014, India in 2015, Peru in 2016, Panama in 2017, and China in 2018.
