Biological Surveillance Tools

The Force Readiness and Health Assurance (FR&HA) and Medical Countermeasures (MCM) divisions of Health Readiness Policy & Oversight help carry out and advocate the use of Health Surveillance activities within the Department of Defense. These initiatives provide early warning of infectious disease outbreaks, hazardous environmental exposures, or possible bioterrorist attacks by spotting trends of public health importance. The Director of Global Health Surveillance is responsible for supporting the collection and generation of reports that cover diseases, injury, occupational / environmental health, mortality, and outbreaks.

Check out our Environmental Exposures page to learn more on CB agents and deployment-related exposure incidents and trends.
