Efforts to Address the Medical Needs of Children in a Chemical Biological Radiological or Nuclear Incident
U.S. Government Accountability Office. (2013). Efforts to Address the Medical Needs of Children in a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, or Nuclear Incident.
The U.S. Government Accountability Office was asked about efforts to address the needs of children in the event of a CBRN incident. This report examines: the percentage of CBRN medical countermeasures in the Strategic National Stockpile that are approved for pediatric use; how the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is addressing the challenges associated with developing and acquiring CBRN medical countermeasures for the pediatric population; and the ways HHS and state and local governments have addressed the dispensing of pediatric medical countermeasures in emergency response plans and guidance.
