Pandemic Influenza Preparedness and Response: a WHO Guidance Document
- World Health Organization (WHO)
This revised World Health Organization (WHO) guidance on pandemic influenza preparedness and response has been developed to guide WHO Member States and others responsible for influenza preparedness at the national level.
This publication, 'Pandemic Influenza Preparedness and Response: a WHO Guidance Document', is the product of expert opinion, derived from several international consultations. Research included the examination of available information and modelling studies, input from public health experts on lessons learned from SARS and consolidation of recommendations in existing WHO guidance.
All recommendations in this guide have been subject to extensive public review.
WHO advocates a 'whole of society' approach to sustainable pandemic preparedness, while focusing in more detail on the role of the health sector. The roles of WHO and national governments are outlined to create a better understanding of how health and non-health sectors, both public and private, all contribute to pandemic preparedness.
