Title: The FDA vs. South American Regulation; How do they Compare?
Developed under the guidance of Dr. Ann Ortiz , Spanish

Americans have become dependent upon pharmaceuticals; in fact, seven of every ten citizens take at least one prescription drug. Thus, it is necessary that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) function to ensure the safety, efficacy, and security of pharmaceuticals within the United States. How do other governments, particularly those of South America, handle drug safety? How do these policies differ from those of the FDA? Throughout this presentation FDA regulations will be compared to regulations found in various South American countries.
