Training the trainer for pandemic influenza preparedness


MMGH supported the WHO Department of Infectious Hazard Management (IHM) in the preparation and facilitation of a workshop on country preparedness for vaccine deployment in the event of an influenza pandemic. The main objective was to create a network of international experts that would be able to support their own country, and other countries, to develop national pandemic preparedness plans, and for participants to become educators about the need for countries to be prepared for a pandemic. MMGH revised and updated the WHO “Guidance on Development of a National Deployment and Vaccination Plan for Pandemic Influenza Vaccines” together with its associated Checklist, as well as all necessary workshop materials.
