Industry, researcher views sought to build national health security picture

The National Health Security Resilience Assessment 2020 (“NHSRA 2020”) is now live. Participation from the broadest range of respondents – encompassing government agencies, industrial and research organisations – is critical to developing a comprehensive picture of Australia’s sovereign preparedness posture.

NHSRA 2020 is a detailed examination of Australia’s capability and capacity to conduct research, development, manufacturing and distribution of products and services that are essential to national health security.

NHSRA 2020 builds on previous work but has an expanded remit to assess sovereign capability across six critical sectors including Medical Countermeasures, Medical Devices, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Modelling and Simulation, Hazard Management and Sensing Systems.

NHSRA 2020 is led by DMTC and supported by the Defence Science & Technology Group through its Next Generation Technologies Fund.

Multiple government agency stakeholders were consulted in the development of the NHSRA 2020 and will derive strategic insight and direction from the results.

To participate please visit the NHSRA 2020 homepage, accessible via the following link, where you will be invited to register as a user and complete surveys of relevance to the work of your organisation:
