FDA Documents

US Thalidomide Survivors obtained thousands of pages of FDA documents through a Freedom of Information Act request in 2011 and many more in 2018. We are waiting for a final decision regarding pages that have been previously withheld from the public. Although any person can make a Freedom of Information Act request, we are making the documents available for the public to access without waiting for a response from the FDA.
