The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published the National Strategic Plan for Public Health Preparedness and Response in September of 2011. As stated in the Strategy, CDC’s preparedness vision for the nation is people’s health protected—public health secured. This is consistent with the Presidential Policy Directive 8, the Department of Health and Human
Services’ Healthy People 2020, National Health Security Strategy, and Strategic Plan, the Department of Homeland Security’s National Response Framework, and other national preparedness and response plans and doctrine.
To achieve the vision by 2020, it is essential that partners and stakeholders across public health, healthcare, bio-defense, emergency management, and the private sector, work together. In the next decade, CDC will continue to lead partnerships in the public health system to carry out the public health preparedness mission to strengthen and support the nation’s health security to save lives and protect against public health threats.
