Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
On September 27, 2019, ASPR awarded $6 million to support the creation of two Pediatric Disaster Care Centers of Excellence (COE) as pilot projects to improve regional disaster response capabilities in the United States.
The cooperative agreement established the Eastern Great Lakes Pediatric Consortium for Disaster Response led by UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital of Cleveland and the Western Region Alliance for Pediatric Emergency Management led by University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Health System and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals across two HHS regions with nearly 20 million children.
Under this cooperative agreement, the recipients will develop or improve the capability and capacity to provide highly specialized care to pediatric patients within and outside their own regions by:
