COVID-19: addressing the global health crisis

Supporting the public health response to coronavirus

USP is working with government organizations, manufacturers of drugs and other health products, and healthcare professionals in the US and around the world to build the public’s trust in vaccines and treatments for COVID-19 disease. Our work includes standards that assure the quality and safety for drug ingredients and finished products, and technical assistance and support on issues such as vaccine administration and raw material selection and testing. We are also addressing supply challenges and emerging quality and safety concerns with medicines and products such as hand sanitizer.
