"The Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan was first published in July 2005 and continues to be a dynamic and interactive document. Following the release of the National Pandemic Influenza Plan by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in November 2005, the Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Committee undertook the challenge of reviewing and augmenting the Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan to address areas that needed to be enhanced. The 2006 Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan was expanded from six to nine essential elements that are integral in the management of a potential influenza pandemic. [...] In the 2007 revision of the State's Pandemic Influenza Management Plan, the nine essential elements have been updated and another essential element, Workforce Psychosocial Support, has been added. The Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan and its appendices were developed as guidance for a coordinated statewide, multi-sector response to pandemic influenza. Prevention and preparedness activities to facilitate the public health response and recovery components after a pandemic are also part of the plan guidance. The Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan is public health-focused with the overall goal to minimize serious illness and deaths that may occur with a severe influenza pandemic. However, preparedness planning is also essential for businesses, schools and communities to address other impacts such as economic and social well-being. The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) in collaboration with numerous state, local and tribal partners continues efforts to promote planning and response activities and to enhance partnerships between state, regional, local and tribal partners."
