Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise
The Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) contributes to the nation’s preparedness for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats, as well as emerging infectious disease threats. It does so by enhancing timely availability and equitable use of effective medical countermeasures (e.g., vaccines, treatments, devices, personal protective equipment) to protect Americans from those threats.
The PHEMCE partners work to holistically inform the plans and actions that ensure the right balance of medical countermeasures and improve availability and use of those medical countermeasures during disasters and emergencies. Improving the capabilities also enhances the nation’s ability to nimbly respond to unknown and unforeseen threats.
