America faces grave danger from a wide range of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) weapons, and from the emergence and spread of infectious diseases. As a matter of national security, America urgently needs to develop medical countermeasures (MCMs) to counter CBRN threats. The federal MCM program is characterized by this 2010 report as a good effort conducted by talented people, but lacking in centralized leadership and with poor synchronization of the agencies within the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS). It has not fully tapped the talent of the Dept. of Defense (DOD) and the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS). There is no unified national strategy that prioritizes the array of threats and encompasses all aspects of responsiveness. This report identifies three important themes in the additional effort needed to develop MCMs. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
