SUMMARY

An essential function of gov't. is to protect the public's safety, particularly from those threats such as terrorism that individuals cannot effectively deter themselves. Critical parts of this security function rest in the public health (PH) system, where skilled professionals are needed to prepare for, detect & respond to an array of hazards. This report recommends specific ways that the State of CA can fulfill this obligation, by focusing its PH functions into a single dep't. with physician leadership & a public & expert advisory board. The State also will need to build a strong & responsive partnership with county health offices & private providers. And it will need to fortify its professional workforce & arm it with effective technologies. Charts & tables.Alpert, Michael E. is the author of 'To Protect and Prevent : Rebuilding California's Public Health System', published 2003 under ISBN 9780756734978 and ISBN 0756734975.
