"The Department of Public Health (DPH) is the lead administrative and planning agency for public health initiatives, including public health emergency preparedness. The DPH works with federal, state, regional, and local partners to improve the state's ability to respond to public health emergencies. The Connecticut Public Health Emergency Response Plan (Connecticut PHERP) identifies the DPH response activities during a public health emergency. The plan supports the public health and medical care component, emergency support function #8, in existing state disaster and emergency plans. The Connecticut Pandemic Influenza Response Plan is an annex to the Connecticut Public Health Emergency Response Plan. The objective of the Pandemic Influenza Response Plan is to provide a framework for government agencies and private organizations to work together to mitigate the consequences of pandemic influenza. This is a working draft document and, as such a is subject to revision. The plan will be reviewed periodically to ensure that the plan's provisions are up to date with current public health knowledge."
