SEMP Biot #679: What Did the 2009 Swine Flu Pandemic Response Accomplish?   [open html - 597KB]

"As the 2009 swine flu consternation slowly fades into history, barring a third wave, some alert observers from a variety of countries and cultures are beginning to ask questions, such as what did pandemic preparedness and response accomplish? Who benefited from the efforts? Who did not? How much did the efforts cost? Were the preparedness and response activities a good value? How good? Why? For whom? What trends characterize the health management of anthrax bioterrorism, SARS, avian flu, and novel swine flu outbreaks in the decade 2001-2010? In these four outbreaks, were preparedness and response activities based on reliable and valid data and information? Is anyone studying preparedness and response processes and outcomes for these four outbreaks as a group?"
