Comments requested on the updated draft of the National Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR) is currently updating the Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities to reflect insights learned from recent disasters. The updated capabilities provide more specificity around what the entire healthcare delivery system can do to save lives and continue to function in advance of, during, and after a response. The updated capabilities also prioritize equity in all activities, with the goal of ensuring access to consistent levels of care in underserved and historically marginalized communities and at-risk individuals. Comments are being accepted on the draft until Friday, June 9 via the online comment form
