Abstract

The New England Compounding Center’s (i.e., NECC) meningitis outbreak represents a major public health crisis of 2012 that led to over 40 deaths, along with infection of several hundred individuals. The outbreak necessitates the need for how such a crisis could be prevented.. The research focuses on assessment of the NECC Meningitis Outbreak using the Anticipatory Model of Crisis Management (AMCM). Using the AMCM principles, it was found that NECC did not engage in an adequate vigilant decision making process.
