National Health Security Preparedness Index 2020: Navigating the Pandemic & Preparing for New Uncertainties

This dataset shows that national health security capabilities continue to gain strength, but at a rate that has slowed down over time. Most states experienced improvements in health security levels over the past year, but at widely varying levels.

With a large set of 130 measures, the Index allows users to identify strengths and weaknesses across a broad range of sectors and capabilities.
