CDC, Partners Publish Agenda for Public Health Legal Preparedness

CDC and partners have issued the National Action Agenda for Public Health Legal Preparedness as a resource that public health officials, policy makers, and partners may use in assessing and improving their jurisdictions' legal preparedness for public health emergencies.

The agenda was developed through the June 2007 National Summit on Public Health Legal Preparedness convened by CDC and 18 multidisciplinary partners to assess public health emergency legal preparedness, identify legal preparedness "best practices," and create a shared agenda for action to improve legal preparedness for public health emergencies of all kinds. The lead CDC units were the Public Health Law Program and the Coordinating Office of Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response.

The agenda appears in a special supplement to volume 36 of the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics, published by the non-profit American Society for Law, Medicine & Ethics (ASLME), available at www.aslme.org/cdc. ASLME will publish a paper edition in early 2008.
