NHSS, 2023-2026 Implementation Plan
National Health Security Strategy (NHSS), 2023-2026 provides a whole-of-nation approach to prepare for, protect from, respond to, and recover from the adverse health effects of public health emergencies and disasters. Healthcare and public health (HPH) preparedness depend on many interconnected systems, including public health, medical, and emergency management. Collaboration between the federal government, state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) partners, regional entities, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and communities is needed to effectively respond to health security threats and challenges discussed in the
NHSS, 2023-2026 Implementation Plan (NHSS IP) serves as a framework to guide federal action and recommend implementation activities for SLTT partners, private industry, and communities. The
NHSS IP builds on the goals and objectives of the
NHSS, 2023-2026 and provides suggested implementation actions and desired outcomes for the federal government. Successful implementation of NHSS IP actions depend on establishing strategic partnerships and addressing the needs of at-risk individuals and underserved communities. Actions will be implemented throughout the course of the timeframe of the NHSS (2023-2026). Implementation will be informed by the current and projected threat environment, alignment with relevant priorities and initiatives, and available resources. Additionally, the
NHSS IP offers suggested implementation actions for a wide array of non-federal partners. These actions are intended to be broad so they can be applied to the individual needs of the stakeholder.
