Resource Ready (a Healthcare Ready Preparedness Tool) is here to help you prepare for and recover from disasters with your health needs in mind. Use this new tool to get a list of resources around the web and on our website to help you and your loved ones prepare for disasters or disease outbreaks.
When disaster strikes, you can count on the healthcare supply chain to be as resilient as the communities it is designed to serve. Through Healthcare Ready’s vast partnership network of pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors, and local, state and federal officials, the supply chain’s ability to anticipate and react to disasters has never been more efficient and effective.

When disaster strikes and our most vulnerable need help, it takes coordination, collaboration, and a strong network of public, private, and non-profit partnerships to get supplies where they’re needed. Healthcare Ready leverages its unique partnerships within the supply chain to do just that.

The COVID-19 pandemic puts certain groups at a greater risk for severe illness and death. COVID-19 is especially harmful to the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Healthcare Ready aims to protect these populations now, and during all public health emergencies, as we know the risk is often far greater for them.
This infographic shows a few likely causes of the disparate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Black and Latinx communities. Black and Latinx people are testing positive and dying at higher rates from coronavirus. This pandemic is made worse by existing health and socioeconomic inequities, and in turn, it is worsening those disparities in Black and Latinx communities.
This infographic breaks down key features of resilient communities, in contrast with communities that lack resilient public health infrastructure.
