Pharmacovigilance is the science and activities relating to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or any other drug-related problem. WHO established its Programme for International Drug Monitoring in the year 1968 in response to the thalidomide disaster detected in 1961.
The aims of pharmacovigilance are to enhance patient care and patient safety in relation to the use of medicines and to support public health programmes by providing reliable, balanced information for the effective assessment of the risk-benefit profile of medicines.

Heart disease in the young Indian population primarily due to lifestyle and wrong dietary habits

New Delhi, 16th June 2017: According to research, about 7% of those between 25 and 40 years of age in the metros suffer from coronary heart diseases (CVD). The incidence of heart diseases is increasing in the younger generation with both men and women equally at risk. Data also reveals that about 50% of all heart attacks in Indians occur under 50 years of age and 25% in Indians under 40 years of age. Those living in the cities are three times more prone to heart attacks than people in the villages.
Heart disease is emerging as the number one killer in the country and India is likely to see the highest number of cases in the world. Studies indicate that heart disease has affected the young Indian population 10 years ahead of their Western counterparts. All this can be attributed to a sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle and lack of physical activity.
