National Health Security Strategy

The National Health Security Strategy establishes a framework for strengthening our national capability to prevent, detect, assess, prepare for, mitigate, respond to, and recover from disasters and emergencies. The strategy describes how as a nation we can improve readiness and adapt operational capabilities to address ever-changing health security threats.

Public health and medical preparedness depends on interconnected systems including public health, healthcare, and emergency management, and we are looking for feedback from a diverse set of stakeholders. Collaboration between the federal government, state, tribal, territorial, and local authorities, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and communities is needed to effectively respond to health security challenges.

Together, we can strengthen U.S. public health and health care systems to confront serious risks, such as emerging infectious diseases with pandemic potential; severe natural disasters and human-caused incidents; cyber warfare; and the use of CBRN weapons.
