Pandemic Flu - Public Health Research Guide

This guide focuses on the law related to efforts in preventing, detecting and containing human influenza on the international, regional and national level.

Introduction

The spread of human influenza does not respect national boundaries and there could be simultaneous outbreaks in different parts of the world. Co-ordination of preparedness and response at the international, regional, and national level is therefore essential.

This research guide focuses on the law related to the efforts in preventing, detecting and containing human influenza on the international, regional and national level (focusing on the United States).
