About FDA

MNVP Project

Description: The MNVP program focuses on shortages of medically necessary products used to treat a serious or life threatening disease, as well as those shortages that would have the greatest impact on public health. The program manages veterinary drug shortages by the evaluation of essential animal drug product shortage situations, so that appropriate actions may be taken promptly to ensure product availability. (1)

Accomplishment: The key project resulted in the creation of the CVM Animal Drug Shortage Information Website. This publically available webpage contains up-to-date information on potential, current, and resolved shortages of animal drugs. It also includes links to information on human drug shortages that may impact veterinary practice. Internally, this key project produced available data, table listing to identify products manufactured in only one manufacturing site, for CVM reviewers to utilize during the determination for the classification of an animal drug product as a MNVP. Finally, the CVM Program Policy and Procedures Manual Guide has been revised and updated to reflect the current process for CVM animal drug shortage management.
