The Evolution of Public Health Emergency Preparedness

Oct 18, 2022 | Emily Boyle

This is a unique time for public health preparedness. The response to an unprecedented pandemic coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) program. The confluence presents a singular opportunity to examine how the preparedness community can learn from past response efforts and better position communities to meet the challenges that lay ahead. A new report by NACCHO and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) gives voice to our members on the evolution of PHEP and offers a framework to guide future action. A concerted effort at all levels will be necessary to implement changes that will bring about more ready and resilient communities.

View a summary of the report and explore ways you can get involved in advancing the future of public health preparedness.

Listen to the Podcast from Washington with Ben Robison, Health Commissioner for the Wood County Health Department in Ohio, talking about the importance of PHEP locally, how the program might evolve in the future, and how you can get involved in advancing PHEP’s evolution in your jurisdiction.
