America¿s physical infrastructure -- incl. aviation, highway, transit, rail, water, and dam infrastructure -- is critical to the nation¿s economy and affects the daily life of virtually all Americans, but is under strain.

Rebuilding public health and health care delivery systems has been an important component of nation-building efforts conducted after major conflicts. However, few studies have attempted to examine a comprehensive set of cases, compare the quantitative and qualitative results, and outline best practices. The study assesses seven cases of nation-building operations following major conflicts: Germany and Japan immediately after World War II; Somalia, Haiti, and Kosovo in the 1990s; and Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001. It concludes that two factors increase the likelihood of successful health outc

Over the past several years there have been a number of reports to help the nation better prepare for, respond to, and recover from a possible influenza pandemic, which could result from a novel strain of influenza virus for which there is little resistance and which therefore is highly transmissible among humans. An influenza pandemic remains a real threat to our nation and the world. This report synthesized the results of 11 reports and two testimonies issued over the past 3 years using 6 key thematic areas: (1) leadership, authority, and coordination; (2) detecting threats and managing risk
