Despite many of the public health preparedness advancements made using PHEP funding, as a result of recent budget cuts, many LHDs are losing the resources they need khổng lồ effectively respond khổng lồ public health emergencies. According to lớn the Association of State và Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), since 2005, federal funding for PHEP has decreased by more than 42 percent. This reduction severely decreases the sustainability of ongoing local preparedness activities.

To emphasize the importance of sustained PHEP funding and encourage state và local jurisdictions khổng lồ talk lớn government leadership and other stakeholders about PHEP, ASTHO created the PHEP Communications Toolkit. The purpose of this resource is to:

Increase awareness of the benefits & importance of PHEP funding as well as the need for sustained PHEP funding lớn national congressional representatives, local and state policymakers, & other key stakeholders;Demonstrate & communicate the success of PHEP funding in strengthening preparedness efforts in state & local health departments; andRespond to lớn press inquiries about the impact cuts in PHEP funding.

This toolkit can be used by state, local and territorial preparedness directors và their staff to lớn educate legislators about the importance of PHEP và establish community champions for PHEP. As a result, the public health preparedness community’s voice will be amplified, increasing awareness about the accomplishments made due to PHEP funding.
