2015 Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) Strategy and Implementation Plan [open pdf - 926KB]
"The streamlined 2015 PHEMCE SIP [Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise Strategy and Implementation Plan] provides: 1) a summary of the major recent accomplishments; 2) updates to the activities from the 2014 PHEMCE SIP only where significant changes have occurred; and 3) specific information required annually under PAHPRA [Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act] reporting mandates. Over the past year the PHEMCE has made great progress in advancing national health security. The PHEMCE has assessed threats to our national health security, improved the MCM [medical countermeasure] requirements and acquisition framework used to identify MCM needs posed by those threats, and conducted early and advanced research and development. PHEMCE agencies approved additional MCMs (including approvals under the regulatory mechanism known as the Animal Rule), manufactured and procured critical MCMs, addressed MCM needs of at-risk populations, developed and enhanced federal communication plans and MCM utilization guidance, and implemented policies for the international sharing of MCMs."
