ASPR Stakeholder Virtual Listening Session: Priorities for Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness

In just the last year, public health professionals across the country have faced a wide range of disasters, including historic hurricanes, devastating wildfires and more.  They have worked to combat Zika in their communities and witnessed cyberattacks affecting the health care infrastructure.

The HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response wants you to share your priorities and viewpoints on the future of pandemic and all-hazards preparedness.   We are looking for input on a wide variety of topics impacting emergency preparedness, response and recovery, including:

  • Sustaining robust and reliable public health security capabilities
  • Improving threat and situational awareness, securing adequate resources, and providing clear policy direction
  • Creating a National Disaster Healthcare System
  • Advancing an innovative medical countermeasures enterprise

There are two ways you can join the conversation.
