Protecting patients by advocating safe, effective, affordable drugs and medical devices

What you should know

Prescription drugs are unaffordable and new drugs and devices often are approved without being proven safe and effective. Public Citizen challenges Big Pharma, device manufacturers and federal regulators to make drugs and medical devices safe, effective and accessible to all.

Our Work

Our doctors and policy experts use research and advocacy to push for safe and effective drugs and medical devices, and to lower the cost of drugs and make them accessible to all.
