Organization Information

The National Health Resources Advisory Committee (NHRAC) was established in 1950 by the President, re-established August 16, 1962; re-established June 24, 1968, under the authority of Executive Order No. 11415; re-established June 27, 1973, under the authority of Executive Order No. 11725. It is a Presidential advisory committee and functions within the jurisdiction of the Office of Preparedness, General Services Administration.

The Committee advises the Director of the Office of Preparedness, and through him, the President of the United States concerning the allocation, utilization and administration of health resources including manpower, material and facilities under various mobilization situation and on problems of the non-governmental health community relating to emergency preparedness.

As originally established, this committee had a common membership with the National Advisory Committee on the Selection of Physicians, Dentists and Allied Specialists. When the Committee was re-established on August 16, 1962, it was specified that it would have a separate membership from that of the National Advisory Committee on the Selection of Physicians, Dentists and Allied Specialists. When the Committee was re-established by Executive Order No. 11415, dated June 24, 1968, it was decided that a common membership with the National Advisory Committee on the Selection of Physicians, Dentists and Allied Specialists was preferable to a separate membership, so a common membership was re-instituted. The Committee now has 12 members appointed by the President to represent the principal disciplines within the various health fields.
