How does Rx Response's strategy ensure response in a public emergency?

The Rx Response program’s strategy helps to ensure readiness and response in the event of a severe public emergency through:

Promptly identifying and addressing pharmaceutical supply system barriers and issues arising during a disaster, such as disruption in transportation systems; Engaging with federal, state and local government agencies—working through other organizations if appropriate—to address risks to the delivery of pharmaceuticals to patients that the private sector cannot address on its own, such as
