Australian Health Management Plan for Pandemic Influenza: Important Information For All Australians  [open pdf - 4MB]
Taken from the Introduction: "Despite advances in medicine, science and technology, when a new disease emerges human beings will always be susceptible for a time until effective vaccines and treatments can be developed. From time to time, new forms of the influenza virus, against which many people have little or no immunity, emerge in animals and in humans. Such viruses have the potential to cause a pandemic. […] This Australian Health Management Plan for Pandemic Influenza outlines (from a health perspective) what the Commonwealth Government is doing--and what the health sector, key stakeholder groups, organisations, the community and individuals can do--to prepare for a pandemic. It builds on the original Australian Management Plan for Pandemic Influenza released in June 2005, drawing on the latest expert epidemiological advice and on extensive consultations with the health sector, key industry sectors and the community."
