HHS Retrospective on the 2009 H1N1 Influenza Pandemic to Advance All Hazards Preparedness
United States. Department of Health and Human Services
"This report is intended to stimulate discussion within HHS, with other federal departments and across relevant organizations--both governmental and non-governmental--about how to build upon the successful elements of the response and concretely address areas that warrant improvement. […] Discussions, accompanied by careful analysis of scientific evidence, can inform concrete actions to improve pandemic and all-hazards preparedness. This report represents an early step in a multifaceted improvement process that will require continued participation by the public, and health and preparedness officials at all levels, both public and private. […] The 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic, which was declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) in June 2009 and officially ended in August 2010, provided an important test of our nation's preparedness activities and our ability to respond and adapt to a large-scale, protracted public health emergency with the potential for enormous health consequences. […] It is appropriate for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to step back and examine which aspects of our preparedness and response worked well and which did not, as well as which elements of our preparedness were not stressed in our response to the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, but could be in a very severe pandemic as experienced in 1918."
