||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.
