CDC works with a wide range of international partners, including the World Health Organization, National Ministries of Health, and others to build capacity to respond to pandemic influenza and to prevent and control seasonal influenza.

Core activities include helping establish, expand, and maintain influenza surveillance and laboratory capacity, helping develop global and local pandemic plans and influenza prevention policies, supporting targeted research projects to address critical needs, and building the evidence base for decisions on influenza vaccine program expansion. The Influenza Division and its partners are committed to reducing the threat of influenza and other emerging diseases globally.
