Model Operational Guidelines for Disease Exposure Control
November 2, 2005
What would we do if a potentially lethal contagious disease was infecting Americans and we had no vaccines or medicine to stop it from spreading? The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Homeland Security Program has released a draft report to address this problem by detailing recommendations for protecting the American public against natural and manmade contagious disease outbreaks when medical countermeasures are unavailable.
Over the next three months, CSIS will collaborate with the various stakeholders in reviewing and refining this document to ensure that it reflects the best technical, public health, and emergency operations thinking to plan for an outbreak.
