New CARE website for influenza

We are pleased to launch a new flu site that will compile information on the current H1N1 influenza (swine flu outbreaks) and tools that your country office can use for staff safety and security and pandemic preparedness.

The new site is: www.flu.care.org

We are still maintaining our blog (www.avianflunetwork.blogspot.com) for breaking news.

We will be continually updating this website, particularly for guidance and tools that are in draft format, so we encourage you to check the website regularly. As with any new website that is being updated, there may be technical difficulties from time to time. We urge you to be patient and simply check back later.

Another website that I highly recommend for NGOs is www.pandemicpreparedness.org This website is part of the H2P Initiative and a highly credible source.

Posting your country office documents to the website:

We would love to receive updates from your country office. If you have translations, tools or preparedness plans that you’ve developed, please email them to: care.flu@sharepoint.care.org - Your document will be automatically uploaded to the website. Our team will approve it and it will be available for everyone to see.
