.DIA was founded in 1964 by group of pharmaceutical scientist-executives as result of the 1962 Kefauver Harris Amendments to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. These amendments, a response to the Thalidomide tragedy, created new standards for health care product efficacy, safety and labeling and introduced new requirements for clinical trials. The founders saw the need for a neutral platform where... regulators and industry could discuss how to interpret and implement these new evidence requirements. This neutral forum has been credited over the years with helping to harmonize international regulations, advance data standards, and facilitate the introduction of electronic submission of pharmaceutical applications.
Today, DIA is a premier, global, non-profit association that provides tens of thousands of professionals at all levels and across all disciplines access to timely, authoritative information to advance careers, skills, and innovation in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical devices, diagnostics, and related fields in the health care products ecosystem.
For more than 50 years, DIA has been the neutral forum for facilitating knowledge exchange and collaboration through networking, education, and training that provides enterprise-wide solutions across the full spectrum of medical product development and through meetings, conferences, publications, conferences, digital collaboration, and other events to foster knowledge exchange, collaboration, and networking to advance medical product delivery to patients.
DIA has had a significant impact in many outcomes that have advanced biomedical and regulatory science, public policy, and innovation. Now in the second 50 years of its journey, DIA has revitalized its brand and has embarked on a strategic course to increase its relevancy in the rapidly changing world of global health care product development, life cycle management, and patient involvement. Our activities are guided by clarity on our vision to be the essential partner in knowledge creation and sharing to accelerate heath care product development and delivery to patients. We have developed a specificity on the strategy to achieve that vision, and we have a highly capable, motivated Board of Directors and ELT (Executive Leader Team) in place to drive DIA into the future.
DIA has been undergoing a significant transformation. We have emerged as a premier professional association for all constituent groups in the health care ecosystem. The SVP / Managing Director for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (SVP/MD Americas) would join as a key member of the ELT, with a specific mandate: create and implement the strategy that will accelerate the growth and relevance of our Americas footprint and further define the new DIA.
