  • HHS Recommends Ways to Improve US Efforts in Medical and Vaccine Preparedness

    US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius released last week an examination of the federal government’s system to produce medical countermeasures, (e.g., medications, vaccines, equipment, and supplies) needed for health emergencies. The report, The Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise Review: Transforming the Enterprise to Meet Long-Range National Needs, reviews the system and makes recommendations, including suggestions for improving vaccine manufacturing and investment.

    “Our nation must have a system that is nimble and flexible enough to produce medical countermeasures quickly in the face of any attack or threat, whether it’s a threat we know about today or a new one,” Sebelius said in an HHS press release. “By moving towards a 21st century countermeasures enterprise with a strong base of discovery, a clear regulatory pathway, and agile manufacturing, we will be able to respond faster and more effectively to public-health threats.”
