It is likely that another influenza pandemic will occur at some time in the future. The State of Arizona has created a Pandemic Influenza Response Plan to promote an effective response throughout an influenza pandemic. While a pandemic response is primarily a public health response, many agencies, organizations, and private institutions will need to work in a coordinated and collaborative manner to ensure an effective overall response in Arizona.
The report consists of an introductory summary and a series of detailed Supplements. The heart of the Arizona Influenza Pandemic Response Plan is the Response Activity Supplements. These Supplements are subject-area specific and provide very detailed planning and response activities.
The Response Activity Supplements are subject to change and will be updated with changes in planning assumptions, response capacities, or information on potential pandemic strains and subsequent disease.
