About Public Health Infrastructure and Preparedness
Public health infrastructure provides communities, states, and the Nation with the capacity to prevent disease, promote health, and prepare for both acute and ongoing challenges to health. All public health programs—such as immunization, infectious disease monitoring, cancer and asthma prevention, drinking water quality, injury prevention, and emergency preparedness—depend on the presence of basic infrastructure. Public health infrastructure addresses every program’s need for competent health professionals, up-to-date information systems, and capable public health agencies. Resilient communities and individuals are ready to handle many different types of emergencies—both natural and man-made—that threaten their safety. Preparedness planning minimizes the impact of public health threats on individuals and their communities. Preparedness requires strengthening national health security by building community capacity to prevent, protect against, mitigate the effects of, respond to, and recover from public health threats.
