It is domiciled in the University of Benin Teaching Hospital and coordinates pharmacovigilance activities in the zone. The UBTH was chosen due to its pivotal role in pharmacovigilance activities with the establishment of an Adverse Drug Reaction Registry (now Drugs Poison Information and Pharmacovigilance Centre) in 1989 and contributions towards the establishment of the National Pharmacovigilance Centre.
