Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory

Fundamental to pandemic preparedness is the ongoing surveillance, epidemiologic, and laboratory activities that are undertaken to monitor and characterize both seasonal influenza, novel influenza A viruses and emerging influenza A viruses circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. Existing influenza surveillance networks rely on data from domestic and international public health partners to monitor seasonal influenza viruses, novel influenza A viruses, and influenza A viruses circulating among animals. The following resources are available for public health departments, clinicians, and laboratorians to assist with pandemic planning.
