Pandemic (H1N1) Influenza 2009

Review of Australia’s Health Sector Response to Pandemic (H1N1) 2009: Lessons Identified

The Report is the result of extensive consultation with Australia’s domestic stakeholders to ensure it accurately reviews the health sector response to the 2009 pandemic. It focuses on what was planned, what happened during the response, and identifies key issues and lessons to inform future pandemic planning in Australia. The Report makes twenty-five recommendations that encompass the range of public health policies and actions relevant to a national health sector response to an influenza pandemic.

The Pandemic Review Implementation Advisory Committee (PRIAC) was established to oversee the implementation of the recommendations. The PRIAC is chaired by the Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Professor Chris Baggoley, and comprises of appropriate stakeholders including Commonwealth, jurisdictional, and specialist representation. The outcomes of a number of recommendations will inform a review of the Australian Health Management Plan for Pandemic Influenza 2009. Top of Page
