CDC Grand Rounds: Addressing Preparedness Challenges for Children in Public Health Emergencies



CDC Grand Rounds: Addressing Preparedness Challenges for Children in Public Health Emergencies



Mmwr. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 64(35): 972-974



Recent public health emergencies including Hurricane Katrina (2005), the influenza H1N1 pandemic (2009), and the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa (2014–2015) have demonstrated the importance of multiple-level emergency planning and response. An effective response requires integrating coordinated contributions from community-based health care providers, regional health care coalitions, state and local health departments, and federal agency initiatives. This is especially important when planning for the needs of children, who make up 23% of the U.S. population (1) and have unique needs that require unique planning strategies.
