The National Minority Quality Forum commends the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the release of the report, “Ensuring Access to Adequate Information on Medical Products for All.” This report is an important step in advancing efforts to improve the quality and effectiveness of drugs, biologics and devices in racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in advanced clinical research, including Hispanics/Latinos, African Americans, and Asians/Pacific Islanders.
