In addition to the usual sections (Regulatory Matters and Safety of Medicines) this issue includes the summary of recommendations from the sixth meeting of the WHO Advisory Committee on Safety of Medicinal Products (ACSoMP) that was held earlier this year in Geneva.
The thirty-second Annual meeting of National Pharmacovigilance Centres will take place at Rabat, Morocco, 2-5 November 2009. Pre-meeting events will include a training workshop in the use of MedRA (Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities), a workshop on strategies for identifying and preventing medication errors, and a technical briefing on pharmacovigilance to all new members joining the WHO Programme for International Drug Monitoring. We hope to see many of you at this meeting.
