Since the start of the pandemic, the U.S. government has allocated over $34 billon to improve U.S. medicines supply chain resilience.
Standards play an important role in the global medicines supply chain, helping governments and manufacturers increase the availability of safe, quality medicines, as well as building patient and health provider trust. In fact, quality standards are a big reason why we in the U.S. can get a prescription filled at our neighborhood pharmacy and trust that the medicine we receive will be safe and work as it should.
USP’s success in its mission to improve global public health through creation of standards and related programs depends in large part on the work of volunteers.
COVID-19 is transforming our ways of thinking about the development, manufacture and delivery of critical medicines to patients around the world.
