Mission Statement

ASPR's mission is to assist the country in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from public health emergencies and disasters. ASPR accomplishes our mission in several ways, including: developing, stockpiling, and distributing response tools against multiple threats; sending clinical response teams to places in times of crisis; and ensuring our healthcare and public health partners have the knowledge and tools they need to navigate today's challenges and confront whatever challenges lay ahead.

The Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR) leads the Nation's medical and public health preparedness for, response to, and recovery from disasters and emergencies. Events of the last few years, including the COVID-19 pandemic, reinforced the need to prepare for simultaneous and disparate disasters that may strain the U.S. government's ability to respond. Additionally, as a result of climate change, outbreaks of novel viruses and natural disasters, such as hurricanes, flooding, droughts, and wildfires, are all expected to become more frequent and severe, affecting thousands of people every year.

The 2022 – 2026 ASPR Strategic Plan sets the direction of the organization, prioritizes agency actions, and facilitates coordination and collaboration with partners. The development and implementation of this Strategic Plan reflects ASPR's continuing commitment to strengthen our ability to prepare, respond and recover quickly from multiple health threats. This Strategic Plan will allow us to build upon past successes while focusing on the current needs of the nation, inspiring innovation, and pursuing excellence.
