Abstract: Building Public Health Emergency Resilient Communities

Infectious disease has challenged human settlements over all of history, but today we have the opportunity to understand the disease mechanism and think ahead about how the community might prepare to confront infectious diseases. Public health agency infectious disease response plans include a variety of tools, starting with community awareness, surveillance and reporting, protective actions like social distancing, and vaccination. Emergency management organizations are present to support public health with planning for communication, service delivery, patient care resources and community recovery.
