Meeting Description:
This webinar reviews the recently-released IOM report, Prepositioning Antibiotics for Anthrax. At the request of the Department of Health and Human Services office of the assistant secretary for preparedness and response, the IOM convened a committee to inform the use of strategies for prepositioning antibiotics for protection against an anthrax attack. 

The webinar highlights the various implications of prepositioning strategies for local, state, and tribal health departments.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain different types of prepositioning strategies and benefits, costs, and tradeoffs associated with each.

  • Explore how to use the decision-aiding framework to determine which prepositioning strategies, if any, would be appropriate for a particular community.
     

  • Understand the committee's recommendations for state, local, and tribal public health departments and consider next steps for local public health officials.
