The culmination of this collective effort, Walensky wrote in an email to agency staff on Monday, is the development of new systems and processes to deliver CDC science and programs to the American people in conjunction with a plan to ensure CDC facilitates our public health work.

A one-month review of the Health Resources and Services Administration's response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be overseen by Jim Macrae, the agency's associate administrator for primary health care.

In an effort to further strengthen “how the delivery of our science and program can be further strengthened during this critical time of transition,” Macrae will begin evaluating COVID-19 politics on April 11.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) head Rochelle Walensky announced a sweeping review of her agency.

It added that efforts need to be made "to institutionalize and formalize these approaches and to find new ways to adapt the CDC's structure to the changing environment." In a statement to news outlets, the CDC said it has "worked to speed up data reporting and scientific processes throughout our pandemic response" in the past year.
