Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
BARDA'S OVERARCHING VISION IS OF A NATION WITH the capability to respond quickly and effectively to deliberate, natural, and emerging threats so as to minimize their impact and recover promptly. A critical enabling factor for the realization of this vision is the existence of a robust domestic pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector that actively collaborates with the U.S. Government to address unmet medical countermeasure and public health requirements.
BARDA's vision for the next five years is to enhance the capability of the U.S. Government to respond quickly to both known and emerging threats by supporting the development of a comprehensive portfolio of medical countermeasures, needed manufacturing infrastructure, and countermeasure production platforms while establishing an affordable and sustainable foundation for the maintenance and future operations of the PHEMCE.
BARDA's mission is to develop and procure needed medical countermeasures, including vaccines, therapeutics, diagnostics, and non-pharmaceutical countermeasures, against a broad array of public health threats, whether natural or intentional in origin. BARDA was created to address gaps in the U.S. Government medical countermeasure development and procurement process and to bridge the "valley of death" that separates candidates identified in early research from potential FDA licensure/approval by providing funding, technical support and services necessary to advance candidate products through the developmental pipeline.
BARDA supports the ASPR Values Statement and endeavors to embody these values in its efforts to fulfill its mission and realize its vision.
