Is your healthcare, public health, or emergency response organization ready to communicate effectively with all the people in your community who rely on you? HHS has developed a checklist with some basic principles that you can use to communicate with various populations who have communication needs.
Smallpox can damage the throat making it nearly impossible to swallow pills. BARDA will purchase the antiviral smallpox medication called TPOXX in pill form and support the development of an intravenous (IV) formulation of the drug. The IV formulation will be used to expand health security and prepare for the potential use of smallpox in a biothreat.
Mustard agents have been used in conflicts for over a 100 years and there are no approved treatments. BARDA is supporting the development of a new treatment for skin injuries caused by sulfur mustard, potential terrorism threat.
Pathogens causing serious infections can become resistant to antibiotics, threatening health security. Learn how BARDA is driving innovation in antibiotic development & partnering with industry to build a portfolio of products that could be used to save lives when disaster strikes.
