Health Alert Network

CDC's Health Alert Network (HAN) ) is a strong national program that provides vital health information and the infrastructure to support the dissemination of that information at the state and local levels, and beyond. A vast majority of the state-based HAN programs have over 90% of their population covered under the umbrella of HAN. HAN ensures that each community has:

  • rapid and timely access to emergent health information.
  • a group of highly-trained professional personnel.
  • evidence-based practices and procedures for effective public health preparedness, response, and service on a 24/7 basis.

The HAN Messaging System currently directly and indirectly transmits Health Alerts, Advisories, Updates, and Info Service Messages to over one million recipients.

ASM maintains a webpage to keep members informed of the issues being discussed on the HAN.
