Pandemic Influenza: Community Planning and Response Curriculum for Community Responders, Volunteers and Staff

The Humanitarian Pandemic Preparedness Initiative (H2P) has created this training package to build skills for community-level preparedness and response in the event of an influenza pandemic. Facilitator guides are available to address two important groups: 1) district and community leaders and 2) community responders, including health workers, staff of health and humanitarian agencies, and volunteers.

The H2P Initiative helps countries prepare for a pandemic influenza emergency by helping them develop ready and deployable (“off-the-shelf ”) capacity to train and support first responders during an influenza pandemic. This capacity will enable countries to provide rapid, coordinated, and effective responses that will minimize sickness and death, safeguard livelihoods, and maintain societal cohesion and integrity. This package is designed to be customized before a pandemic breaks out, and then “rolled out” quickly as soon as a pandemic begins to move around the world.
