Summary
This book aims to assist 'non-expert' public health professionals and the well-qualified lay-person to gain a rapid overview of pandemic influenza. It comprises 16 chapters written by experts with real-life experience of their subjects. It provides a comprehensive overview of pandemic influenza with strong emphasis on practical topics related to preparedness, including pharmaceutical and public health countermeasures, policy issues, infection control, communication, ethics and modern bio-mathematical modelling. It is highly relevant to public health professionals and local authority officials involved in pandemic preparedness in both developing and developed nations, and will also be valuable to students of public health-related subjects
