The American people face a host of national health security threats from chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) agents and emerging infectious diseases. Under the leadership of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasure Enterprise (PHEMCE) is the coordinating body for federal agencies working to protect the civilian population from these threats through the use of medical countermeasures -- medicines, devices, or other medical interventions --- to lessen their health impacts. This webinar is designed to increase knowledge about the PHEMCE and its recently released 2012 PHEMCE Strategy and Implementation Plan.
