A successful working relationship between the public health, healthcare, and emergency management sectors is critical to public health and medical emergency mission success. Most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the vital importance of collaboration among public health, emergency management and healthcare.  Across these sectors, the strengths of existing relationships vary and the language each sector speaks is different—making collaboration more difficult. Also, how each sector employs various response systems such as ICS was evident.

At the same time, challenges faced by our communities grow—with multiple emergencies occurring simultaneously and the impacts of each compounding. How can public health, emergency management, and healthcare work to strengthen their partnerships in support of communities? The time is now to talk about it, examine response systems, and take steps to deepen relationships.

The theme of the 2024 Preparedness Summit, “Public Health, Healthcare, and Emergency Management: Aligning to Address Cascading Challenges,” will provide an opportunity for sectors to come together, align missions, and discover better ways to work as true partners. By investing in these partnerships now, we can build connections that enhance our individual and collective capabilities and readiness for ongoing and future response and recovery.
