Title CDC's Emergency Management Program activities – worldwide, 2003-2012 Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication MMWR. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report Abbreviated Journal MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep
Volume 62 Issue 35 Pages 709-713
Keywords *Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.); Emergency Medical Services/*organization & administration; Humans; *International Cooperation; United States
Abstract In 2003, recognizing the increasing frequency and complexity of disease outbreaks and disasters and a greater risk for terrorism, CDC established the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), bringing together CDC staff members who respond to public health emergencies to enhance communication and coordination. To complement the physical EOC environment, CDC implemented the Incident Management System (IMS), a staffing structure and set of standard operational protocols and services to support and monitor CDC program-led responses to complex public health emergencies. The EOC and IMS are key components of CDC's Emergency Management Program (EMP), which applies emergency management principles to public health practice. To enumerate activities conducted by the EMP during 2003-2012, CDC analyzed data from daily reports and activity logs. The results of this analysis determined that, during 2003-2012, the EMP fully activated the EOC and IMS on 55 occasions to support responses to infectious disease outbreaks, natural disasters, national security events (e.g., conventions, presidential addresses, and international summits), mass gatherings (e.g., large sports and social events), and man-made disasters. On 109 other occasions, the EMP was used to support emergency responses that did not require full EOC activation, and the EMP also conducted 30 exercises and drills. This report provides an overview of those 194 EMP activities.

Title Providing care for children and adolescents facing homelessness and housing insecurity Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication Pediatrics Abbreviated Journal Pediatrics
Volume 131 Issue 6 Pages 1206-1210
Keywords Adolescent; Child; *Child Welfare; *Health Policy; Health Services Accessibility/*statistics & numerical data; Healthcare Disparities/*statistics & numerical data; Homeless Youth/*statistics & numerical data; Housing; Humans; Physician-Patient Relations; Risk Factors; adolescents; children; health; homelessness; housing insecurity; pediatrician; poverty; toxic stress
Abstract Child health and housing security are closely intertwined, and children without homes are more likely to suffer from chronic disease, hunger, and malnutrition than are children with homes. Homeless children and youth often have significant psychosocial development issues, and their education is frequently interrupted. Given the overall effects that homelessness can have on a child's health and potential, it is important for pediatricians to recognize the factors that lead to homelessness, understand the ways that homelessness and its causes can lead to poor health outcomes, and when possible, help children and families mitigate some of the effects of homelessness. Through practice change, partnership with community resources, awareness, and advocacy, pediatricians can help optimize the health and well-being of children affected by homelessness.
