Fact Sheet: Pandemic Treatment Access and Affordability (PTAA) Act
The federal government has spent tens of billions of taxpayer dollars on research and development (R&D) of vaccines and treatments for COVID-19, including $23 billion for manufacturing and purchasing. Despite this public investment, there is no guarantee that these taxpayer-funded drugs will be affordable, accessible, or available to all those who need them.
To address this growing problem, Representatives Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Peter Defazio (D-OR) introduced the Pandemic Treatment Access and Affordability (PTAA) Act, H.R. 597, on January 28, 2021.
