AMA, AHA & ANA urge president to use DPA to address COVID-19

The American Medical Association, American Hospital Association, and the American Nurses Association have sent a letter to President Donald Trump urging him to “immediately use the [Defense Production Act] to increase the domestic production of medical supplies and equipment that hospitals, health systems, physicians, nurses and all front line providers so desperately need.”

The organizations stress that, “As COVID‐19 continues to spread throughout the country, these supplies are urgently needed to care for our patients and communities.”
