2016 Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise Stakeholders Workshop Report [open pdf - 729KB]
"The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) established the Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) in July 2006, as a coordinated, interagency organization to define and prioritize requirements for public health emergency medical countermeasures (MCMs); to integrate and coordinate research, early- and late-stage product development, and procurement activities addressing the requirements; and to set deployment and use strategies for MCMs held in the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). The Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA), enacted in December 2006, established the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), under which the PHEMCE is managed and through which it operates. [...] The goal of the 2016 PHEMCE Stakeholders Workshop was to provide a forum within which a broad spectrum of stakeholders in the PHEMCE mission of effective provision of emergency medical countermeasures could learn about PHEMCE activities, interact, and provide input to PHEMCE partners about their interests, issues, concerns, and priorities."
