Alliance for a Stronger FDA
The Alliance for a Stronger FDA is a collaborative project including members from the nonprofit consumer, patient, and biomedical research community as well as health professionals, trade associations, and individual companies. The goal of the Alliance is to ensure that the Food & Drug Administration has the resources it needs to protect patients and consumers. FDA is a federal agency within the Department of Health & Human Services and is mandated by Congress to assure safety and quality for a variety of consumer products that collectively represent 25% of every dollar spent within the United States economy, including all medical products (drugs, biological therapeutics, blood products, vaccines, medical devices, diagnostic screening tests, nutritional supplements, and more). Visit the Allliance for a Stronger FDA website.
On September 7, the Alliance announced that the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee increased FDA funding by about $50 million. Read the press release from the Alliance.
Diane Dorman, Vice President for Public Policy, is a member of the Board of Directors for the Alliance for a Stronger FDA.
