"The third edition of the Norwegian National Influenza Pandemic Preparedness Plan is a revised and extended edition of the present preparedness plan which the Ministry of Health established in July 2003. The first Norwegian National Influenza Pandemic Preparedness Plan was, however, laid down as early as January 2001. The European Union as well as the World Health Organization recommend their membership countries to work out updated preparedness plans for influenza pandemics and that they establish a closer collaboration between public health authorities and animal health authorities in each individual country. This plan is part of the Norwegian response to these recommendations. A preparedness plan for pandemic influenza must obviously be a dynamic document that is able to respond immediately to changes in the global as well as the national situation."
