ABSTRACT

Centrally Funded Influenza Pandemic Response Materiel Guidance   [open pdf - 121KB]

"The Military Health System must be prepared to respond to an influenza pandemic. I believe it is prudent to purchase and store certain items of materiel at military medical treatment facilities (MTF) and selected intermediate storage sites. Consequently, approximately $7.9 million has been provided to the Services to allow MTFs to purchase and store five personal protection items to protect personnel who may have direct patient contact in the event of a pandemic. We have initiated a central purchase of approximately $24.5 million of antibiotics as recommended by the Services' infectious disease consultants for distribution to select MTFs and intermediate storage sites."
