Description
 
Public health emergencies, such as the 2001 anthrax attacks and the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic, raise concerns about the nation's vulnerability to threats from chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) agents and new or reemerging infectious diseases, such as pandemic influenza. The Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the federal agency primarily responsible for identifying medical countermeasures needed to address the potential health effects from exposure to CBRN agents and emerging infectious diseases. In Aug. 2010 HHS conducted a review to assess how to better address these concerns; it concluded that the advanced development and manufacture of CBRN medical countermeasures needed greater support. The review recommended that HHS develop centers to provide such support, in part by using flexible manufacturing technologies, such as disposable equipment, to aid in the development and rapid manufacture of products. This report addresses (1) how much funding HHS has awarded for flexible manufacturing activities for medical countermeasures; and (2) the extent to which these activities will support the development and production of CBRN medical countermeasures. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
