A New Health Response Framework

From Govtech: Report Recommends National Framework for Public Health Response. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recommends a ‘Science Framework’ to develop mechanisms for collecting evidence and for funding on a continuous basis for consistent, evidence-based responses.

With all the various “strategies” unfolding across the country to deal with the coronavirus outbreak, it would be helpful to collect data on what’s really working and what’s not, but that isn’t in anyone’s playbook.

It should be, and that’s one of the recommendations from a report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. One of the key recommendations of the report was the development of a National Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response (PHEPR) Science Framework to be led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
