HIDA Preparedness Priorities Signed
Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness and Innovation Act (PAHPAI) was signed by
President Trump last night and became law. The bipartisan legislation was
passed by the Senate by voice vote on May 16th and passed by the
House of Representative by a vote of 401-17 earlier this month.
is the third reauthorization of The Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act
originally passed in 2006. This is the first version of the bill to include key
healthcare supply chain principles. These provisions were included in the final
package which will now support a more elastic healthcare supply chain, including:
regional health systems to the supply chain;
coordination with the commercial market on response, re-entry and
understanding manufacturing capacity;
ancillary product availability for medical countermeasures; and
of product substitutes.
will continue to work with Capitol Hill to ensure government programs which
support the healthcare supply chain are adequately funded.
