Rx Response Raised to 'Alert Status' in Response to Growing Swine Flu Threat
Date:4/29/2009

WASHINGTON, April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rx Response, an unprecedented partnership created to help ensure the continued flow of medicines to patients in a severe public health emergency, has been put on Alert Status as concerns grow over the health threat posed by outbreaks of swine flu in the United States.

"Americans need to know that the medicines they rely on will be available even in an emergency," said Billy Tauzin, president and CEO of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), a member of Rx Response. "Rx Response provides federal and state crisis managers with the critical information they need about the pharmaceutical supply chain to help communities affected by an emergency return to normal as quickly as possible."

Alert Status means that Rx Response members are now closely monitoring developing information regarding influenza cases detected in the United States and are working with local, state and federal health authorities to help ensure the continued efficient functioning of the nation's pharmaceutical supply chain.

Over the past 48 hours, Rx Response officials have been in contact with federal and state health officials to share information about the pharmaceutical supply system's pandemic response capabilities.

Rx Response was developed more than 2 years ago in response to Hurricane Katrina and the threat of pandemic influenza. Rx Response members include:

  • American Hospital Association (AHA)
  • American Red Cross
  • Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO)
  • Generic Pharmaceutical Association (GPhA
