Mapping CARE's programs and capacity in avian and pandemic influenza

Through collaboration with the CDC and our Avian and Pandemic Influenza Program, CARE’s Capacity Map of Avian & Pandemic Influenza programs has been completed and is now available on our AI & pan flu website. This compendium of programs, activities and staff capacity is a wonderful summary of the global efforts being administered by CARE to help prevent and respond to avian influenza and prepare for a pandemic.

The same information is also available in an innovative format - CARE’s work in avian influenza has been imported and mapped into Google Maps & Google Earth. It is now possible for anyone to view CARE’s AI work around the globe when a simple search through the Google Maps program is performed.

The following link will take you to the proper site on Google Maps: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=108637105166402366018.000444f333cd335921d21. Alternatively, you can go to Google.com, select “Maps” and do a search for “CARE's Work in Avian & Pandemic Influ­enza.”

We have also embedded the map on the CARE AI website: http://icarenews.care.org/avianflu.html
