Useful, but maybe not obvious links

  1. The official Pandemic Flu website for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. http://pandemicflu.gov/. In the author's opinion, this is not actually a highly useful website, but it does represent the opinion and efforts of the U.S. government.
  2. National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza. http://www.whitehouse.gov/homeland/pandemic-influenza.html. The official strategy for a pandemic influenza event, as of November 2005. 
  3. Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy. http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/. One of my personal favorites, this website has consistently updated information, particularly on H5N1 developments. 
  4. Flu Wiki. http://fluwikie.com/. Although not sponsored by an accredited university or government agency, this website has consistent chatter about pandemic influenza, with contributions from doctors, scientists, city employees, and normal citizens. Designed in order to help citizen's prepare for and cope with a pandemic situaiton. Very much like the Humans & Viruses class blog, except with a focus on pandemic influenza.
  5. Of course, I'm going to shamelessly plug my own creation- Pandemic Influenza Preparation and Response: A Citizen's Guide. This guide has been edited and re-edited by some of the nation's leading experts and officers in risk communication, public health and disease control. It is designed for the lay-person.
