National Health Security Preparedness Index offers enhanced perspective through its new blog feature

The National Health Security Preparedness Index combines measures from multiple sources and perspectives to offer a broad view of the health protections in place for the nation as a whole and for each U.S. state. The Index identifies strengths as well as gaps in the protections needed to keep people safe and healthy in the face of large-scale public health threats, and it tracks how these protections vary across the U.S. and change over time. Last week, a new blog feature of the Index website was launched that offers periodic analyses, stories and perspectives on the changing nature of health security and preparedness across the United States. The first blog post examines Index results through an equity lens and considers how concepts of equal protection might be useful in responding to new threats like Zika.
