The Pharmaceutical Distribution Security Alliance is a multi-stakeholder and interdisciplinary initiative. Membership spans the entire spectrum of the U.S. pharmaceutical distribution system, including manufacturers, wholesale distributors, third-party logistics providers, and pharmacies. More than 25 companies are formal members of PDSA, while many other external stakeholders provide additional policy and technical support.


The Pharmaceutical Distribution Security Alliance’s mission is to develop and help enact a federal policy proposal that enhances the security and integrity of the domestic pharmaceutical distribution system for patients, and to articulate a technical migratory pathway to implement such a policy. Our primary goal is ensuring patients have uninterrupted access to safe, authentic, FDA-approved medicine.


Members of the PDSA include leading biologic and pharmaceutical manufacturers, primary and secondary wholesalers and distributors, pharmacies, and third-party logistics providers as well as leading trade associations representing the interests of these stakeholders.
