The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) is within the Office of the Secretary. ASPR’s mission – to lead the Nation in preventing, preparing for, and responding to the adverse health effects of public health emergencies and disasters – and its vision – a Nation prepared to prevent, respond to and reduce the adverse health effects of public health emergencies and disasters – reflect the essential role ASPR plays within the Nation’s public health preparedness and emergency response arena. ASPR focuses its efforts on promoting community preparedness and prevention: building public health partnerships with federal departments and agencies, academic institutions and private sector partners; and coordinating federal public health and medical response capability. ASPR is comprised of five components, of which three award grants.
The Office of Preparedness and Emergency Operations (ASPR/OPEO):
OPEO is responsible for developing operational plans, analytical products, and training exercises to ensure the preparedness of the office, the Department, the Federal government and the public to respond to public health and medical threats and emergencies. OPEO is also responsible for ensuring that ASPR has the systems, logistical support, and procedures necessary to coordinate the Department’s operational response to acts of terrorism and other public health and medical threats and emergencies.
OPEO is the lead for interagency planning and response activities required to fulfill HHS responsibilities under Emergency Support Function (ESF) #8 of the National Response Plan (NRP) and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) #10. OPEO maintains a regional planning and response coordination capability, and has operational responsibility for HHS functions related to the National Disaster Medical Systems (NDMS). OPEO also oversees the Hospital Preparedness Program which awards cooperative agreements to states, local, and territorial jurisdictions to strengthen the capability of hospitals and healthcare systems to plan, respond to, and recover from all hazard events.
Office of Medicine, Science, and Public Health (ASPR/OMSPH):
OMSPH provides leadership, coordination, and subject matter expertise on the medical, scientific, research, and public health aspects of emergency preparedness and response for ASPR. Additionally OMSPH develops public health, medical, and science policy options and guidance to enhance public health emergency preparedness. OMSPH designs and implements initiatives and programs to expand worldwide capability to prevent, detect, mitigate and respond to man-made or naturally occurring public health emergencies including pandemic influenza and other emerging infections. IN addition, OMSPH forges effective domestic and international partnerships with government, academic and private sector organizations to achieve public health emergency preparedness.
Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (ASPR/BARDA):
BARDA provides an integrated, systematic approach to the development and purchase of the necessary vaccines, drugs, therapies and diagnostic tools for public health medical emergencies. BARDA also manages Project, BioShield, which includes the procurements of medical countermeasures for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear agents, as well as the advanced development and procurement of medical countermeasures for pandemic influenza and other emerging infectious diseases that fall outside the auspices of Project Bioshield.
