Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Fifteen years ago, Project BioShield was created to get medical countermeasures across the finish line. Last month Congress, took action to further strengthen Project BioShield as part of PAHPAIA of 2019. BARDA is leveraging new legal authorities, strong partnerships and multi-year funding to spur innovation and strengthen health security.
ASPR is proud to launch ASPR Next, a new program to spur innovation in the development of new technologies & products that can be used to provide lifesaving care in austere circumstances. To kick off this initiative, we are bringing together our partners at ASPR Next Innovation Day to discuss ways that we can develop cutting-edge technologies to save lives. Help shape the next generation of products and technologies to improve disaster medical care.
"Using PAHPAIA, ASPR will continue to transform health security, and we look forward to using the new or renewed authorities in the law as we work with long-standing and new partners to build readiness and response capabilities against the very serious health security threats our nation faces."
The new PAHPAIA strengthens public health and healthcare readiness, bolsters response and recovery programs, and increases transparency. ASPR looks forward to working with our partners under the new and reauthorized authorities to protect the American people from modern health threats.
Drug and medical supply shortages can happen at any time, and they can occur with very little warning due to disasters. Take some time during steady state to identify federal and private sector points of contact and build relationships you can rely on in an emergency.
