Developed, Developing Nations Should Work in Tandem to Ensure Safe Imports
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other agencies must provide expertise, training and tools to developing nations to improve their device and drug monitoring practices and prevent dangerous healthcare products from entering the U.S., according to an April 4 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report.
