UCLA is partnering with the University of Kentucky, New York University on a CDC grant to validate the National Health Security Preparedness Index. The National Health Security Preparedness Index is a unique resource for tracking state and national capabilities that protect people from adverse health consequences caused by disasters, disease outbreaks, and other large-scale hazardous events. The project includes partnering with professional associations to develop decision support tools for use of the Index.
