Senior PV expert, Ethiopian Food and Drug Authority

Tigist Dires Gebreyesus (PhD) is currently working as a senior pharmacovigilance and post marketing surveillance expert at Ethiopian Food and Drug Authority. As a senior expert, I’m mainly responsible in the design and implementation of several active surveillances on vaccines and medicines conducted by our pharmacovigilance center. Additionally, preparation of pharmacovigilance guidelines and standard operating procedures for the major pharmacovigilance activities also falls under my responsibility. Furthermore, I have been developing pharmacovigilance training materials and trained healthcare professionals at different levels.

I have six publications on pharmacovigilance and related subjects. In my daily pharmacovigilance activities, I usually have in my mind patient safety as a priority.
