The Food and Drug Administration oversees a broad range of medical and consumer products. In fact, the agency estimates that the items it regulates account for 20 cents of each dollar Americans spend.
The Pew Charitable Trusts understands the tremendous impact these products have on public health. This project advances policies that will effectively protect consumers from dangerous products and reduce safety risks associated with new innovations in the marketplace. Pew’s current efforts focus on diagnostic tests, dietary supplements, over-the-counter drugs, and regenerative medicine.
