BARDA PROGRAMS

The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, provides an integrated, systematic approach to the development of the necessary vaccines, drugs, therapies, and diagnostic tools for public health medical emergencies such as chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) accidents, incidents and attacks, pandemic influenza, and emerging infectious diseases.

Together with our industry partners, BARDA promotes the advanced development of medical countermeasures to protect Americans and respond to 21st century health security threats.

The mission of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) is to develop medical countermeasures that address the public health and medical consequences of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) accidents, incidents and attacks, pandemic influenza, and emerging infectious diseases.

We accomplish this critical mission through five key activities
Core Services

BARDA supports a number of core services to assist the development and production of required products, in a manner that is timely, reliable and cost effective.

Innovation

BARDA's countermeasure development divisions, our Division of Research, Innovation and Ventures (DRIVe), and the TechWatch program help bring innovation to our programs. The innovation programs identify and support the advancement of technologies that enhance capabilities for the development and manufacturing of medical countermeasures that focus on biodefense, pandemic influenza and other emerging infectious diseases.

CBRN Programs

The Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA) established BARDA as the focal point within HHS for the advanced development of and acquisition of medical countermeasures to protect the American civilian population against CBRN and naturally occurring threats to public health.

 

Advanced Development

Congress seeks to improve our Nation's emergency preparedness with Project BioShield, which provides the government with the ability to further develop, acquire, stockpile, and make available the medical countermeasures needed to protect the U.S. population against a public health threat.

 

Emerging Infectious Diseases

BARDA uses a comprehensive portfolio approach to develop and acquire a broad array of medical countermeasures for pandemic influenza, including vaccines, therapeutics, diagnostics, and non-pharmaceutical countermeasures and to build and sustain their domestic manufacturing infrastructure.
