NEMA and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) have formed a joint policy work group to identify ways in which state emergency management and public health agencies can work more closely together to enhance preparedness efforts.

Some of the issues the group address includes better coordination between federal grant programs so that states can more easily leverage resources to support all hazards preparedness, better alignment of federal exercise requirements for states, development of performance measures for common functions between EM and public health, EMAC training for public health officials, and encouragement of regional planning.  The work group includes funding partners CDC and HHS/ASPR.
