ABSTRACT

National Health Security Strategy: Evaluation of Progress, 2015-2018   [open pdf - 3MB]

"Every four years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) prepares an Evaluation of Progress (EOP) on the state of national health security in the United States. The EOP summarizes progress made during the implementation of the quadrennial National Health Security Strategy (NHSS) and informs the needs to be addressed in the subsequent NHSS. As we conclude the 2015-2018 NHSS cycle, we must also prepare for risks on the horizon from an evolving, diverse threat landscape with the potential to disrupt our public health and health care systems and inflict injury and loss of life. These 21st century threats include severe natural disasters, emerging and pandemic infectious diseases, terrorism, and potentially catastrophic risks posed by nation-state actors, revisionist powers, and rogue regimes."
