For more than 50 years, DIA (the Drug Information Association) has served as a global forum for all those involved in healthcare product development and life cycle management to exchange knowledge and collaborate in a neutral setting. DIA is an essential resource that provides opportunities to extend debate and discussion to advance scientific and medical innovation and the only global organization dedicated to bringing healthcare product development professionals together in a neutral environment to improve health and well-being throughout the world. DIA is based in Washington, DC (US) with regional offices representing the Americas (Horsham, PA, US); Europe, Africa, and the Middle East (Basel, Switzerland); and Asia (Beijing and Shanghai, China; Mumbai, India; and Tokyo, Japan).

DIA was founded in 1964 as a neutral global membership association dedicated to improving communication and collaboration in drug development. That goal remains the same today.

The organization was born out of a true need. DIA’s founding was closely tied to the 1962 passage of sweeping legislation passed in the United States in response to the finding that use of thalidomide to treat morning sickness caused birth defects. Although the problem was global, there was no organization at the time that could foster cooperative efforts across the entire world. Seeing the need, a group of 30 pharmaceutical professionals, medical writers, and academics created DIA as a fully independent unbiased association.

The neutral posture of DIA encourages active participation. Because membership spans all aspects of health care product development and life cycle management, members are free to collaborate fully as they explore fresh ideas and think outside of their traditional fields. Today, DIA is a worldwide organization in more than 80 countries with regional offices covering the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. [3]
