Prepare and Protect Against Bioterror Attacks

It is vital that we detect, monitor, and treat any disease outbreak as quickly and efficiently as possible. These investments will not only better prepare the nation for and protect us from a bio-terror attack, they will also better prepare us for any public health emergency. In fact, we have already seen our investments pay off in CDC's leadership in fighting the SARS outbreak last year and a coordinated public health response to the West Nile Virus. We have shown that these investments allow us to react quickly, decisively, and effectively to protect Americans.
