Battling the Outbreak

Outbreaks don’t only happen in thriller movies or developing nations. When the United States faced its own threat of pandemic influenza, WSW helped a leader in the life sciences industry craft and execute a multi-department, government-wide strategy to respond to potential outbreaks in American cities and neighborhoods. Coordinating with a team of consultants and in-house staff, WSW successfully shepherded a plan through Congress that funded the National Strategy on Pandemic Influenza. To date, Congress has allocated some $14 billion to this important effort.
