From the Introduction: "The US Department of Health and Human Services, Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) is tasked with protecting the health and safety of all Americans during emergencies and to foster their resilience to withstand and respond to the same. Given the criticality of this task as it relates to youth, the Office of the ASPR requested the National Advisory Committee for Children and Disasters (NACCD) to work with the National Biodefense Science Board (NBSB, previously known as the National Preparedness and Response Science Board, NPRSB) to recommend future strategies the ASPR could utilize in advancing the health security of our nation's youth. Building on the National Preparedness and Response Science Board's (NPRSB) Future Strategies Report (2015), the National Advisory Committee for Children and Disasters (NACCD) worked with the NBSB to review projected trends and develop a prioritized set of future strategy recommendations and initial implementation steps for the ASPR, specific to children's needs in disasters."
