The Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) is an interagency coordinating body led by the HHS Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), comprising the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and interagency partners at the Departments of Veterans Affairs (VA), Defense (DoD), Homeland Security (DHS), and Agriculture (USDA). It coordinates the development, acquisition, stockpiling, and use of medical products that are needed to effectively respond to a variety of potential high-consequence public health emergencies, whether naturally occurring or intentional.
The 2014 Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) Strategy and Implementation Plan (SIP) describes the priorities that HHS, in collaboration with its interagency partners, will implement over the next five years. This plan updates the 2012 PHEMCE SIP and is now required annually by section 2811(d) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act as amended by the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act (PAHPRA) (Public Law 113-5). The 2014 PHEMCE SIP provides the blueprint for the PHEMCE to use in enhancing national health security through the procurement and use of life-saving medical countermeasures (MCMs).
