FDA ‘Strategic Priorities 2011 – 2015’

Source: The U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services

From the press release:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today released the final version of a strategic priorities document outlining the goals that will guide the agency and its 12,000 employees through 2015.

“It’s no secret that the FDA’s responsibilities have increased significantly over the past several years,” said FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D. “We must continue to build a stronger, more effective agency and, as this document outlines, do so in several specific ways.”

Titled “Strategic Priorities 2011 – 2015: Responding to the Public Health Challenges of the 21st Century,” the 50-page document provides a vision of the FDA that includes:

• a modernized field of regulatory science that draws on innovations in science and technology to help ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical products throughout their life cycles
•  an integrated global food safety system focused on prevention and improved nutrition
• expanded efforts to meet the needs of special populations.

“Today, it is clear that the FDA’s job is fundamentally different – and far more complex than it was even a few years ago,” Hamburg said. “We will address these challenges and aim to fulfill our mission by embracing innovation and actively pursuing partnerships with federal, state, and local agencies, international authorities, academia, non-government organizations, and the private sector.”
