CHA Submits Energy and Commerce PAHPA Hearing Statement for the Record

CHA submitted a statement for a House Energy and Commerce hearing to highlight how the national disaster and pandemic response infrastructure must prioritize children’s needs.

CHA submitted a statement for the record for the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee hearing, “Preparing For And Responding To Future Public Health Security Threats.” Our statement calls on Congress to prioritize the unique health care needs of children and the pediatric health care system when reauthorizing Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA) programs and initiatives that aim to improve public health and medical preparedness. Solutions include bolstering the National Advisory Committee on Children and Disasters, equipping the Strategic National Stockpile with pediatric supplies, and strengthening pediatric-readiness within the medical countermeasure enterprise.
