Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (Public Law 109-417): Progress Report on the Implementation of Provisions Addressing At-Risk Individuals [August 2008] [open pdf - 221KB]
"This report [published in August 2008] describes the activities undertaken since the passage of [the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act] PAHPA to address the needs of at-risk individuals. It also provides a look ahead at some of the activities planned as HHS continues its implementation of the new law. The report also serves to inform members of Congress how this Department, working with Federal partners, will continue to improve the Nation's preparedness for at-risk individuals in public health and medical emergencies. Many of the actions called for in PAHPA build upon work the Department has already begun. Other actions require establishing new processes and strategies."
