DHS Medical Countermeasures Study

Stokes Evans was selected by the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate to study the impact of Medical Countermeasure (MCM) dispensing effectiveness on recovery from biological attacks. We were charged with modeling and analyzing an aerosolized anthrax attack on several cities and under multiple scenarios. Stoke Evans developed an end to end model of the MCM preparedness and response process, reviewed several hundred publications, interviewed industry and government experts, and completed a systems analysis. Over 100 process gaps were identified and 25 recommendations were assessed.
