DATA MANAGEMENT FOR REGULATORY AFFAIRS AND PUBLIC HEALTH

    Managing data is one of the most important, yet extremely neglected, areas of work in both national pharmacovigilance centres and national drug regulatory agencies in Africa. To overcome this problem, the expertise of Certified Clinical Data Managers in Sante-Afrique International Limited and the in-country field experience of the WHO-CC were brought together to develop a bespoke one-week course on data management for regulatory affairs and public health. With modules in statistics; epidemiology; data collection, cleaning, storage and analysis, this course has proved extremely popular with regulators, pharmacovigilantes and scientists across Africa. It is offered once a year only.
