CDC Releases Public Health Preparedness Report

Feb 03, 2015

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released its seventh preparedness report 2015 National Snapshot of Public Health Preparedness.

This 2015 annual snapshot of public health preparedness demonstrates how federal investments enhance the nation's ability to respond to public health threats and emergencies in the framework of CDC's three priorities that are:
. Improving health security at home and around the world
. Better preventing the leading causes of illness, injury, disability, and death
. Strengthening public health through collaboration with healthcare

This snapshot also includes Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) awardee fact sheets that present available data to display trends and document progress related to public health laboratory testing and emergency operations coordination. Fact sheets also highlight PHEP capability-specific investments, administrative preparedness, Technical Assistance Review scores, and CDC resources that supported state, local, and insular areas' preparedness activities.
