Since 2016, NACCHO has conducted the Preparedness Profile study every few years to provide a foundation for future public health preparedness initiatives. This nationally representative assessment gathers information from Local Health Departments (LHDs) about preparedness trends and emerging issues to inform priorities at the local, state, and national levels. LHDs play a key role in achieving national health security by preparing their communities for public health emergencies, responding when they occur, and lending support through the recovery process.
The 2022 Preparedness Profile, to be released later this year, will provide findings from a multitude of topics in local health preparedness, including administrative preparedness, partnerships with local entities and communities, and at-risk and vulnerable populations served in preparedness planning.
Preparedness Summit attendees are invited to attend a workshop highlighting results of this report on Monday, April 24, 3:30-4:15 PM ET.
