Issue Report: Ready or Not? Protecting the Public's Health from Diseases, Disasters, and Bioterrorism

Trust for America's Health

December 1, 2010

TFAH issues the Ready or Not? report to provide the public and policymakers with an independent analysis about progress and ongoing vulnerabilities in the nation’s public health preparedness. The report assesses the level of preparedness in states, evaluates the federal government’s role and performance, and offers recommendations for improving emergency preparedness. This report also aims to foster greater accountability for how effectively taxpayer dollars are used to improve the nation’s readiness for health emergencies. Without transparency, it is hard for the American public to know how well the government is protecting them from the range of threats our nation faces.
