Public Health Emergency Preparedness

What is PHEP (Public Health Emergency Preparedness)?

"Public health emergency preparedness is the ability to prevent, prepare for, protect against, respond to, and recover from health emergencies. Public health emergencies are emergencies whose scale, timing, or unpredictability threaten to overwhelm routine capabilities to provide health care. These emergencies are characterized by their high severity, inability to be managed with routine resources, and tendency to cause increased illness, injury, or death. Public health emergencies span a broad range of emergency and disaster situations, including natural hazards, acts of terrorism, and large-scale infectious disease outbreaks".1
