National Plan for Pandemic Influenza January 2007

The Health Service Executive (HSE) together with the Department of Health and Children published the National Pandemic Influenza Plan and Pandemic Influenza Preparedness for Ireland - Advice of the Pandemic Influenza Expert Group on January 15th, 2007.

The purpose of the National Pandemic Influenza Plan was to limit the effects of a potential pandemic, inform the public about pandemic influenza, explain what the Government and the health services are doing to prepare for a possible pandemic and give information on what members of the public need to do if there is a pandemic.

This plan is based on recommendations from the World Health Organization and the guidance of the Expert group set up by the Department of Health and Children and the HSE to advise on planning for a pandemic.
