The National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza

The National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza

On November 1, 2005, President George W. Bush issued the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza. The National Strategy outlines the coordinated Federal Government effort to prepare for pandemic flu. It underscores the critical role that State, local, and tribal authorities; the private sector; and communities must play to address the threat of a pandemic and the concrete steps that individuals can and should take to protect themselves and their families. The Implementation Plan for the National Strategy further clarifies the roles and responsibilities of government and nongovernment entities, including Federal, State, local, and tribal authorities and regional, national, and international stakeholders, and provides preparedness guidance for all segments of society. It represents a comprehensive effort by the Federal Government to identify the critical steps that must be taken immediately and over the coming months and years to address the threat of an influenza pandemic.
