RESPTC FY20 Administrative Supplement.
1 Funding for RESPTCs in FY20 built on previous Ebola programming, which specified this activity at the regional level. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ASPR sought to evolve the regional system already established through Ebola funding into a National Special Pathogens System (NSPS). In order to capture the true intent of RESPTCs’ role in this system, this document refers to a “national system for special pathogen patient care.” RESPTCs continue to operate regionally within this national system.
2 The Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) Ebola Preparedness and Response Activities Cooperative Agreement (CFDA #93.817) Part B permits the Regional Ebola and Other Special Pathogen Treatment Centers to participate in clinical research, clinical trials, and experimental protocols, if appropriate, but recipients may not use cooperative agreement funds for research.
