Community resilience, or the sustained ability of a community to withstand and recover from adversity (e.g., economic stress, inluenza pandemic, man-made or natural disasters) has become a key policy issue, which is being embraced at federal, state, and local levels. Given that resources are limited in the wake of an emergency, it is increasingly recognized that resilience is considered critical to a community’s ability to reduce long recovery periods after an emerency. The goal of this report is to provide a roadmap for federal, state, and local leaders who are developing plans to enhance community resilience for health security threats. he report describes options for building community resilience in key areas. We provide a deinition of community resilience in the context of national health security and a set of eight levers and ive core components for building resilience. We describe suggested activities that communities are pursuing and may want to strengthen for community resilience, and we identify challenges to implementation.
