Pandemic influenza is a re-emerging disease with serious public health consequences. The H1N1 pandemic in 2009-10 and the continuing threat to humans from avian influenza H5N1 and H5N8 have underlined this threat.
Particularly in an increasingly globalised society, it is essential that we have preparedness plans in please at a local, national and international level.
- Gain practical information around the science and operational application of influenza epidemiology, virology and immunology, vaccinology, pharmaceutical and public health measures, biomathematical modelling, policy issues and ethics of preparedness
- Learn from case studies around surveillance, International Health Regulations, clinical management and local health service responses
- Benefit from addressing the key questions and their answers, with relevant modelling studies and further reading
Pandemic preparedness when it comes to influenza and MERS will be covered by true experts at the World Vaccine Congress on April 7-9 in Washington. To hear the latest on how the vaccine industry can effectively and rapidly respond to these threats, join us next month. See the brochure for more info at http://bit.ly/1F2Kjyi
