BIOMEDICAL ADVANCED RESEARCH
AND DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (BARDA)
The PHEMCE has taken a holistic, end-to-end approach to planning that considers multiple aspects of the medical countermeasures mission. The HHS PHEMCE Strategy for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Threats establishes the goals and objectives that HHS will use to ensure that medical countermeasures are available for effective use against the highest priority CBRN threats facing the Nation. The HHS PHEMCE Implementation Plan for CBRN Threats is a prioritized plan with near-, mid-, and long-term goals for research, development, and acquisition of medical countermeasures.
The PHEMCE is led by the Enterprise Senior Council (ESC), which serves as the decision forum for MCM development policy and implementation. The ESC is chaired by ASPR and is comprised of Senior Leaders of the enterprise.
