The Food and Drug Administration is one of the nation's oldest and most respected consumer protection agencies. This presentation will tell you about FDA's responsibilities, the tools we use to fulfill those responsibilities, and our priorities for improving the way we serve the public.

•Stated most simply, FDA's mission is:
- to promote and protect the public health by helping safe and effective products reach the market in a timely way,
- To monitor products for continued safety after they are in use, and
- To help the public get the accurate, science-based information needed to improve health.
