Description:Managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) is a large stock of medicines and supplies designed to support public health agencies during a public health emergency.
The decision to deploy SNS assets is a joint effort among state, local, territorial, tribaland federal officials that begins when the health of a community is threatened.
American Indian / Alaska Native (AI/AN) governments and communities should work with their state and local partners and the Indian Health Service (IHS) to plan how to request, receive, and give out supplies from the SNS during a public health emergency.
