ABSTRACT

Minnesota Department of Public Health Pandemic Influenza Plan: All-Hazards Response and Recovery Supplement   [open pdf - 11MB]

"An influenza pandemic will place extraordinary and sustained demands on the public health and medical care systems as well as providers of essential services across the country, globe, and state of Minnesota. To prepare for the next pandemic, an event considered by many experts to be inevitable, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) in cooperation with various state and local organizations has developed the MDH Pandemic Influenza Plan. This plan was first developed in 1999 and over the course of the last six years the MDH has been working with local public health (LPH), hospitals, clinics, emergency medical services (EMS), emergency management (EM), and other community agencies/partners to enhance the plan as well as develop robust and comprehensive plans for other kinds of emergencies that may impact the state of Minnesota. Emergency preparation is a continuum and planning efforts will always be evolving. As new information arises and lessons are learned the MDH Pandemic Influenza Plan will be updated as necessary."
