FDA ‘Strategic Priorities 2011 – 2015’

Today’s release of a strategic priorities document outlining the goals and strategies that the FDA and its 12,000 employees will pursue through 2015 marks a renewal of our commitment to creating a stronger, more effective agency.

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.

Senior staff from the FDA’s seven product and research centers and two major offices contributed to the document. A Federal Register notice that invited public input in October 2010 generated more than 200 comments that were considered for the final document.

The field of regulatory science and innovation is among five cross-cutting areas that will serve as strategic priorities at the agency during the next five years.

The FDA must have the capacity to effectively oversee the translation of breakthrough discoveries in science into innovative, safe, and effective products and life-saving therapies. This document sets forth our priorities for achieving that goal.

Thank you,

Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D.
Commissioner of Food and Drugs

    Well, I hope on the list is an answer to growing super bugs.

    It is a rapidly changing and sometimes hostile world. I am glad to see the FDA publish their thoughts and plans as to how they fit into this area. It both informs people plus allows for comment. I see this as a good start.

      I agree with you Bill. The more open the FDA is the better for everyone.

  3. April 22, 2011 at 2:13 am

    Hopefully the new strategies the FDA is implementing will be more efficient and make them more aware.

  4. April 22, 2011 at 8:50 am

    Bill, but will it change something or this is next empty words?

    These new strategies are all very nice but has there been an increase in staff levels and budget to match or is it just talk?

      almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had
      to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
      Too cool!

    Interesting to see how far ahead you guys are planning. You mentioned ‘special populations’ – care to elaborate?

    Thanks.

    FDA should check out all the pheromones manufacturers that are putting androstenol chemicals in their fragrances. Not only is this a unapproved ingredient for cosmetic use, but these steroid based chemicals can be absorbed into the skin.

    I’m all for the FDA focusing on the nutritional aspect of modern day food production standards to ensure nothing is getting into the food chain that should not be there. Keep up the good work.

    I’m glad to see that improved nutrition is on the list of priorities. The World Health Organization projects that by 2015 more than 700 million people worldwide will be obese. That’s a staggering number. The US needs to be a leader in propagating the importance of eating a healthy nutritious diet based on the evidence.

  20. September 1, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Great job FDA

    Having lots of unflattering wrinkles around your eyes can make you look older and less attractive than you used to be. Fortunately, you need not live with all those wrinkles around your eyes for long. There are plenty of eye wrinkle creams that can help you blur those lines and creases around your eyes. Of course these eye wrinkle creams do not have magical powers to eliminate those ugly lines around your eyes forever. However, the good news is that the best eye wrinkle products can help you look a few years younger. In fact, some deep wrinkle cream can help reverse the first signs of aging in your face.

    a lot of work? I have no expertise in computer programming but I had
    been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic nevertheless I simply had to ask.
    Many thanks!

    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

    Kudos!
