PHEMCE Overview

Established in 2006, the Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) continues to adapt to changing and challenging new threats to the public’s health. The COVID-19 pandemic illustrates the strain that new and emerging public health threats can have on the U.S. health system.

The PHEMCE will coordinate and collaborate with partners across the interagency to ensure that the needed medical countermeasures and associated capabilities are in place to protect the American people.

The PHEMCE considers the long-term needs of the medical countermeasures enterprise, including interagency funding, considers business process improvement, strategic engagement and coordination.
