Cities Readiness Initiative
In order to reach everyone who will potentially need to receive post-exposure prophylaxis, the DOH in Miami-Dade partners with private businesses and organizations that would like to support the overall effort. Closed PODs are intended solely to provide prophylaxis to the pre-identified employees, members, and households of the partner business or organization. Partner organizations receive planning support and training free of charge. By becoming closed PODs, organizations reduce the number of people seeking prophylaxis at public PODs resulting in shorter lines and faster care for everyone.
Who should partner with CRI?
By working together through public and private partnerships and with help from volunteers from the Miami-Dade Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), we are better prepared to respond to public health emergencies. We rely heavily on partnerships to ensure the best outcome for the community during times of emergencies.
Organizations with fixed populations or with large employee/member populations are eligible to become closed PODs. Medical expertise is not required and time commitments are flexible to meet the needs of the organization. Public, private, faith-based, and civic organizations are welcome and encouraged to participate. For more information on how your business or organization can become a partner of Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County CRI, please email: CRI.MiamiDade@flhealth.gov.
