Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
The following is a text alternative description for the DRIVe: Addressing Systemic Healthcare Problems video.
(Video begins with Dr. Rick Bright, Director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) which is a component of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) speaking in front of the DRIVe - Transforming Health Security logo.)
BARDA has developed and made available many products that prevent, diagnose and treat the illnesses and injuries caused by individual threat agents. It's now time to address those systematic problems — the ones common to most illnesses and injuries. Those need to be resolved to save even more lives.
Sepsis is one of those problems, and with DRIVe, we're focusing on solving sepsis in our lifetime. Too many lives are lost because of sepsis, and if a national health emergency arises, sepsis will surely take more. The innovative approach we have with DRIVe gives us the ablity to tackle this in a comprehensive manner, and to truly transform health security.
(The video concludes with an image, a black background featuring the HHS logo and the video production disclaimer in white, as a female voice over announces "Produced at U.S. taxpayer expense by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services".)
