A Situational Analysis of Pharmacovigilance System in Republic of Benin

Quantitative approach using structure questionnaires was applied to investigate physicians, pharmacists and pharmaceutical industry representatives’ knowledge, attitude and practice regarding Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) reporting and the pharmacovigilance system in Benin. Specific questions examining the ADRs related to ACTs were also asked. Questions regarding reasons for non-reporting and important factors in a decision to report were also addressed. The Indicator-based Pharmacovigilance Assessment Tool (IPAT) developed by the USAID-funded Strengthening Pharmaceutical Systems (SPS) program was also used to assess the current landscape with different stakeholders. Collecting data on the IPAT indicators was performed during different interviews of key informants. Reviewing documents from different stakeholders was done as well.
