What we do and why we do it.


The Western Wisconsin Public Health Readiness Consortium (WWPHRC) was established in 2003 with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop core expertise and preparedness in response to bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, and other public health threats.

WWPHRC is a regional consortium consisting of twenty one local public health agencies and two tribal health agencies.  



To help our members develop local capacity to effectively respond to all types of health emergencies, including bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, and natural disasters.


To protect the health and safety of the citizens living in the jurisdictions of the member agencies by supporting and promoting the professional development of individuals and organizational members in public health emergency preparedness.


We do this through networking, coordinating, standardizing, and centralizing our resources and planning efforts among our members. 


A benefit of consortium membership is standardized, consistent, alignment of emergency response plans. This allows members to respond, provide support, and rely on each other in any situation with minimal delay in response. Plan updates/revisions are managed by the consortium director and communicated out to members for adopting/localizing.
