Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Nearly 800 people joined in a public conversation April 17, 2019 to discuss non-federal biodefense actions that have been taken or are needed to protect the American people from biological threats. Even if you missed the discussion, you can still submit your input as part of an information assessment that will be used to help drive the comprehensive coordination of federal biodefense actions and budgets, as called for in the
National Biodefense Strategy. While interaction with non-federal organizations and agencies will continue, input received by May 1, 2019, will be considered in the federal assessment.
The National Biodefense Strategy sets the course for U.S. to combat the real and serious biothreats our country faces, whether they arise from natural outbreaks of disease, accidents involving high consequence pathogens, or the actions of terrorists or state actors.
Goal 2 – Ensure Biodefense Enterprise Capabilities to Prevent Bioincidents
Goal 3 – Ensure Biodefense Preparedness Enterprise to Reduce the Impacts of Bioincidents
Goal 4 – Rapidly Respond to Limit the Impacts of Bioincidents
Goal 5 – Facilitate Recovery to Restore the Community, the Economy, and the Environment after a Bioincident?
