"The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) Stakeholders Workshop 2008 (PHEMCE Stakeholders Workshop) and BARDA Industry Day was held on September 24−26, 2008, to bring together public and private stakeholders to discuss critical issues surrounding medical countermeasure development and procurement, and to share visions for ensuring adequate public health emergency preparedness. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at HHS, hosted the meeting. BARDA supports the PHEMCE's efforts to increase civilian medical countermeasure preparedness by coordinating the definition and prioritization of medical countermeasure needs and by coordinating and executing advanced research and development of critical medical countermeasures against weapons of mass destruction or other public health threats. The expertise, resources, and commitments of numerous stakeholders, both within and outside the Federal Government, are critical to this mission."
