USP embarked on an ambitious effort to create new modernized standards in USP's compendia and through these efforts improve access to good quality food and drugs.  USP is also a key partner with USAID, working to combat the harmful influx of substandard and counterfeit medicines in developing countries around the world and improve lives through enhanced pharmaceutical standards.
