About Uppsala Reports

Uppsala Reports is the news site of Uppsala Monitoring Centre, featuring content for anyone concerned with the latest issues in medicines safety, country updates, tools and technology, and exciting new research.

Since 1996, UMC has been collecting stories relevant to the WHO Programme for International Drug Monitoring and the broader world of pharmacovigilance and publishing them as a magazine and as digital downloads. UMC sends the Uppsala Reports magazine to member countries in the WHO programme and other selected recipients. We also bring copies to the meetings and training events we attend around the globe.

By subscribing above, you will receive our regular email newsletter featuring new articles, updates and highlights, as well as notification of when we publish new issues of the magazine.

You can always access the latest Uppsala Reports articles right here on this site or download digital versions of every magazine as a PDF.

External submissions are reviewed by staff to ensure factual and editorial integrity. However, any opinions expressed in articles published in Uppsala Reports are those of the authors named and, unless otherwise noted, do not necessarily reflect the views of the Uppsala Monitoring Centre.

We welcome any corrections or suggestions for improvements.
