Health and Social Services Recovery Workshop

ASPR hosted a Recovery Workshop March 3-4 2015 in Washington, DC. The workshop brought together stakeholders from across various levels of government and from outside the government to discuss systematic approaches to recovery, to identify gaps or challenges from recent experiences, and to promote promising practices in an effort to establish a national dialogue for the health and social services emergency management community.

Conversations focused on public health, healthcare, social services and networks in a pre- and post-disaster recovery context. The dialogue indicated that stakeholder engagement in building pre-disaster recovery plans, recovery research opportunities, and coordination across levels of government in concert with non-government organizations is a promising approach to supporting successful recovery. This workshop demonstrated the critical need to enhance the national dialogue in the recovery arena.​
