Essential medicines and health products

WHO Advisory Committee on Safety of Medicinal Products (ACSoMP)

ACSoMP was established in 2003 to provide advice to WHO, including its Collaborating Centre for International Drug Monitoring (the UMC), and through it to the Member States of WHO, on safety issues relating to medicinal products. It guides WHO on general and specific issues related to Pharmacovigilance (PV). The Committee is composed of members drawn from the WHO Expert Advisory Panels for Drug Evaluation and for Drug Policies and Management and, where appropriate, in consultation with other relevant WHO clusters and expert advisory panels. ACSoMP meets once a year to discuss ongoing and new pharmacovigilance topics, with particular focus on issues related to public health programmes.

ACSoMP meets once a year in the WHO HQ, Geneva.
