Here’s a brief summary of the topic:
The last 15 years have seen many changes in terms of how the United States views homeland security and the role of the public health community in maintaining that security. There is an ever-evolving threat of the terrorist use of weapons of mass destruction—particularly in the use of biological weapons—against the U.S. population. Infectious diseases continue to emerge and reemerge around the world, and the globalization of our food supply and the speed and volume of international travel make us all vulnerable to the emergence of a new agent anywhere in the world. Media reports include constant reminders of the devastating effects of natural disasters, such as hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes, and the lack of infrastructure and resources in many parts of the world leave many regions particularly vulnerable to natural disasters and epidemics.
