"President Bush asked Congress for $7.1 billion to fund preparations, and in December 2005 Congress appropriated $3.8 billion to help the Nation prepare. Of that, $3.3 billion was allocated to HHS. This report outlines how that funding is being used to help achieve HHS's five primary objectives: (1) Monitoring disease spread to support rapid response; (2) Developing vaccines and vaccine production capacity; (3) Stockpiling antivirals and other countermeasures; (4) Coordinating federal, state and local preparation; and (5) Enhancing outreach and communications planning."
