Abstract

This document represents an initiative of the International Society of Pharmacoepidemiology (ISPE) in collaboration with the Latin American Drug Utilization Research Group (LatAm-DURG), the Medicines Utilization Research in Africa (MURIA) group, and the Uppsala Monitoring Center, to identify the main challenges associated with drug utilization research (DUR) in the LatAm and African regions. Furthermore, some solutions to overcome those challenges are proposed to accelerate the development of DUR in these regions. As result of this initiative, four separate manuscripts will present the results focused on: 1) challenges facing DUR in the LatAm region; 2) challenges facing DUR in Africa; 3) potential solutions to overcome these challenges, and 4) guidance for researchers interested in carrying out DUR in these regions. This is the first manuscript, and it is related to the challenges identified in the drug utilization research area in the LatAm region. DU researchers in LatAm voluntarily participated in multiple discussions, contributed with local data and reviewed successive drafts and the final document.
