As we know that healthcare professionals are the front runners in maintaining the health of the society and well-being of people. However, the reporting of serious and potential ADRs are merely avoided or neglected due to various reasons. Mostly lack of knowledge on adverse drug reaction plays a crucial role in under-reporting. The people’s myth on reporting that the reporting has to be made by only the HCPs put a negative impact on the general public and this slows down the reporting process. This has a direct and indirect impact on the development of the health of the nation.
