Project

Health Care Products

The Food and Drug Administration oversees a broad range of medical and consumer products. In fact, the agency estimates that up to a quarter of all U.S. consumer spending is on FDA-regulated items.

The Pew Charitable Trusts understands the tremendous impact these products have on public health. This project complements our work supporting drug safety and effective and efficient regulation of medical devices by focusing attention on over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements, as well as fields such as regenerative medicine, in order to safeguard consumers and patients.
