"Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 (HSPD-7) identified 17 critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) sectors and designated Federal Government Sector-Specific Agencies (SSAs) for each of the sectors. Each sector is responsible for developing and implementing a Sector-Specific Plan and providing sector-level performance feedback to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to enable gap assessments of national cross-sector CIKR protection programs. SSAs are responsible for collaborating with private sector security partners and encouraging the development of appropriate information-sharing and analysis mechanisms within the sector." This National Infrastructure Protection Plan gives a snapshot of the Healthcare and Public Health Sector. Information includes a Sector Overview, Sector Vision, CIKR Protection Focus, Priority Programs, and Sector Partnerships. Currently, there is no full Healthcare and Public Health Sector plan available for public release.
