    "Public Health Preparedness: Strengthening CDC's Emergency Response describes the range of fiscal year (FY) 2007 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) projects that received Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response (TPER) funding. Although there are other funding sources for preparedness activities at CDC, such as pandemic influenza, this report focuses on the activities supported by TPER funding. This funding represents significant preparedness investments by CDC, and supports a range of activities at CDC and at state and local levels to help develop the building blocks to respond to public health threats. This report builds on the analysis of state public health preparedness presented in the February 2008 CDC report, Public Health Preparedness: Mobilizing State by State. Both reports are an important part of CDC's overall focus on demonstrating results, driving program improvements, and increasing accountability for the nation's investment in public health preparedness activities. The report is designed to provide easily accessible information about CDC activities within five core public health functions: Health Monitoring and Surveillance, Epidemiology and Other Assessment Sciences, Public Health Laboratory Science and Service, Response and Recovery Operations, and Public Health System Support." - p. 2
