AVIAN FLU SUMMIT FOR BUSINESS

PRE-PANDEMIC PLANNING, PREPARATION & POLICY Posted on: 13 May 06
AVIAN FLU SUMMIT FOR BUSINESS

Summary

This summit aims to provide both strategic and practical information that will ensure that organisations can prepare for and survive what is now considered to be the inevitable pandemic. Professor Hugh Pennington from the Department of Medical Microbiology at University of Aberdeen will repeat his warning that, “Only one thing is certain and that is that there will be a pandemic.”

The topics to be covered at the Summit will stress that comprehensive plans must cover seemingly diverse aspects such as legal policy, staff travel, quarantine arrangements, as well as controlling rumour, speculation and scaremongering that can easily rage out of control
