Melioidosis Emergency Planning for Public Health Departments & Healthcare Facilities

A public health emergency following the deliberate release of Burkholderia pseudomallei, the bacteria that cause melioidosis, will require a coordinated response among public health authorities, healthcare providers and facilities, and community leaders. CDC has created information and resources to help communities prepare an integrated, effective plan to respond to a melioidosis public health emergency.
