Implementation Plan

Cover of the National Health Security Strategy Implementation Plan Successful implementation of the National Health Security Strategy (NHSS) is dependent upon National collaboration and coordination among individuals, families, and communities (including private sector and all governmental, non-governmental, research, and academic organizations) The Implementation Plan (IP) serves as a roadmap to guide community efforts and facilitate collaboration and coordination among stakeholders to achieve national health security as envisioned in the 2009 NHSS.

The IP identifies outcomes that should be realized to achieve the strategic objectives in the NHSS and also identifies high-priority implementation activities to be initiated, subject to the availability of resources. Where possible, the plan provides specific actions, roles, and responsibilities, while allowing for adaptation.

National health security is a national, not a federal, aspiration; therefore ASPR values the input of stakeholders and ASPR encourages you to submit public input via the NHSS Comment Form. Input from members of the general public, health care providers, public health practitioners, academicians, researchers, and policy makers will help inform the development of the 2014 NHSS and its IP.
