Cooperative agreement to a USA children's hospital to improve readiness for and response to public health threats, crises, and emergencies. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. The purpose of the program is to support coordination among the Nation’s pediatric hospitals and their communities in preparing for and responding to global health threats, including the coordination, preparation, response, and real-time dissemination of research-informed pediatric care for future pandemics.

The Regional Pediatric Pandemic Network (the “Network”) will be comprised of five children’s hospitals or their affiliated university pediatric partners in geographically diverse areas across the United States that will work collaboratively across institutions to plan and implement the work of this cooperative agreement. The Network will coordinate the Nation's children’s hospitals and other pediatric experts to strengthen partnerships with existing local, state, regional, and national emergency preparedness systems to ensure the needs of all children are addressed within preparedness and response activities. You must submit a proposal to support a network of five identified children’s hospitals or their affiliated university pediatric partners. 

Program Objectives:

  1. Increase the proportion of children’s hospitals working in partnership with local, state, regional, and/or national emergency preparedness systems including health care, disaster preparedness, and emergency management sectors, in order to provide education and develop preparedness plans to better address the unique needs of children and their families.
  2. Increase the number and types of collaborations that children’s hospitals develop with emergency preparedness systems, national organizations focused on improving pediatric emergency readiness, and community partners, to better address the unique needs of children and their families, including efforts to prevent and address disparities experienced by underserved populations.
  3. Improve the pediatric emergency readiness of health care systems including prehospital, emergency department, and inpatient settings to better address the unique needs of children and their families.
  4. Increase the capability of telehealth/telemedicine systems to better address the unique needs of children and their families.
  5. Accelerate real-time dissemination of research-informed pediatric care to better address the unique needs of children and their families.
