American Academy of Pediatrics Releases Preparedness Resource Kit

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), in partnership with CDC, recently released the “Pediatric Preparedness Resource Kit, Inspired by the H1N1 Pandemic: Strengthening Pediatric and Public Health Partnerships.” This kit promotes collaborative discussions and decision-making among pediatric and public health leaders about pediatric all-hazards preparedness planning. It also aims to increase state- and community-level preparedness that incorporates children’s needs. For local health departments, this kit will offer helpful strategies to identifying pediatricians to serve as a point of contact for pandemic and disaster planning, and more information about reaching out to your state AAP chapter.
