Pharmacovigilance in DEFSA

Pharmacovigilance is considered as one of the activities of the public health service, aimed at the detection, identification, quantification, evaluation and prevention of possible risks arising from the use of drugs and vaccines in humans. We consider this activity as one of shared responsibility among all agents within the National Health System related to drugs and vaccines. These include healthcare professionals, R&D facilities, institutions that carry out research on human beings, pharmaceutical companies with product registry, and distribution companies.

Based on the above, Pharmacovigilance requires the collaboration of the member countries of the International Drug Monitoring Program, of which Mexico is a member; and, therefore, it depends on the commitment and responsibility of each and every one of the healthcare professionals, to obtain positive results and benefits for humanity.

At DEFSA Laboratories, we are a CDMO company committed to cooperating with timely reports to local and global authorities to monitor the products we manufacture.
