SUPPORT THE PREPARE ACT – Public Health Reinvestment and Emergency Pandemic Adaptability, Readiness and Efficiency

January 27, 2022

The public health reinvestment and emergency pandemic adaptability, readiness, and efficiency (PREPARE) act is designed to increase the infrastructural state funding supporting local health departments’ provision of the core public health services needed to provide a base level of protection to the communities they serve. State reinvestment in the funding for local health departments will help retain and sustain a responsive, skilled public health workforce necessary to take prompt action in public health emergencies. Over the past decade, the local public health workforce has decreased by one-third while public health emergencies have been increasing. Click here to learn more about the PREPARE ACT.
