Consumers, health care professionals, and even policymakers lack high-quality, up-to-date information about where pharmaceuticals are made or the quality of the manufacturing facilities.

Our latest paper with Randy Hatton University of Florida College of Pharmacy documents a decade of increased offshoring highlights specific areas of supply chain vulnerability and calls for full manufacturing and location transparency for all consumers.
