The Covid-19 pandemic has increased the scrutiny directed at the fragility of the nation’s supply chain for medical products. Acute shortages of critical medical products, including pharmaceuticals and other key medical supplies, have forced the U.S. to take a hard look at short- and long-term solutions to supply chain vulnerabilities. Many have called for the government to prioritize reshoring efforts.

The article was authored by health care partner Margaux Hall, life sciences regulatory & compliance partner and chair Greg Levine, counsel Beth Weinman and associate Jenna McCarthy (all of Washington, D.C.).
