Health Alert Network (HAN) Messages

The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) has created the Alabama Emergency Response Technology (ALERT) to push health alert network (HAN) messages via email to healthcare providers statewide. ALERT HAN and FDA messages are intended to keep healthcare providers updated on new or emerging healthcare-related situations. ADPH will also send out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) HAN messages using ALERT.

If traveling out of the country, especially West Africa, review CDC Travel Health Notices.
