The public health community plays a vital role in identifying, responding to, containing, and recovering from emergencies. Essentials of Public Health Preparedness will introduce your students to the important and timely field of public health preparedness. The book presupposes no previous exposure to the concepts, yet provides enough depth for students who may have advanced knowledge. The chapters are structured in five parts: Background of the Field; Defining the Problem; Infrastructure; Solving Problems; and Practical Applications.

Recent cases are examined such as: Floods in Pakistan; Managing a hospital in the US during the Ebola outbreak; Deep Water Horizon- coordinating a response with the private sector; Cross-border coordination of an infectious disease in the Middle East.

This expanded edition offers a new chapter on developing a public health emergency operations center as well as new case studies woven throughout the text.
