Through collaboration between IMI, WEB-RADR, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the WHO Collaborating Centre for International Drug Monitoring, the Uppsala Monitoring Centre (UMC), the WEB-RADR mobile application (app) has been launched in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) under the name Med Safety. Initially the WEB-RADR App, the Med Safety App has been re-platformed to facilitate easy adoption and low cost maintenance.
The WEB-RADR project developed a pilot app which was initially made available in the UK, Netherlands and Croatia.
In 2017, the WEB-RADR mobile app was rolled out in Burkina Faso and Zambia. The WEB-RADR team worked together with ZAMRA (Zambia Medicines Regulatory Autority) and the Burkina Faso medicines agency DGPML (Direction Générale de la Pharmacie, du médicament et des laboratoires) to adapt and tailor the app for country specific needs; branding, language.
The Med Safety App is now available for wider adoption. The technology is made available by MHRA on behalf of the WEB-RADR project on a not-for-profit basis. Any unspent resource will be reinvested in platform enhancements

- Collect and view ADR data
