Pharmacovigilance is important in assuring the safety of medicines and protecting patients from harm. The Pharmacovigilance Programme of India (PvPI) is a robust scientific platform that provides valuable information on the safety of medicinal products and contributes to regulatory decisions. Recent changes in the regulation of the drug approval processes and pre- and post-approval vigilance of undesired effects have strengthened pharmacovigilance in India. This article gives an overview of pharmacovigilance structures and practices, their integration into public health programmes, the regulatory context, recent initiatives undertaken by PvPI, challenges to overcome, and the way forward.
