The 2015 National Snapshot of Public Health Preparedness
Wednesday, January 28, 2015
The 2015 National Snapshot of Public Health Preparedness is the CDC’s seventh preparedness report, demonstrating how federal investments enhance the nation’s ability to respond to public health threats and emergencies. We present activities that occurred during 2013 and 2014 in the framework of CDC’s three priorities. The three priorities 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 PHEP awardee fact sheets that present available data to display trends and document progress related to the preparedness capabilities: public health laboratory testing and emergency operations coordination. Fact sheets also highlight PHEP capability investments, administrative preparedness, Technical Assistance Review scores, and CDC resources that supported state, local, and insular areas’ preparedness activities. The report represents an opportunity to showcase the results of the collective investments, initiatives, and activities focused on improving public health preparedness.
The complete report and individual sections of the report are available for downloading as separate pdf files.
