Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovations Act

In 2006, the Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA) was created to improve the nation’s response to public health and medical emergencies. PAHPA also has a great level of oversight authority over implementation and recommendations within the June 2016 National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) report on trauma care, A National Trauma Care System: Integrating Military and Civilian Trauma Systems to Achieve Zero Preventable Deaths After Injury

Current status: Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) along with Senator Robert Casey (D-PA), Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) have introduced S. 1379, the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act of 2019 on May 8th 2019. Included in this package is the American College of Surgeons (ACS)-supported Mission Zero Act. S. 1379 passed the Senate with unanimous consent on May 16th, 2019 and now waits a vote in the House before heading to the President’s desk for a signature.

Please contact your Representative and ask them to support S. 1379.

Thanks for your support!
This campaign has now concluded.
