WHO &CDC: Influenza Training Materials Online!

In 2006 the WHO Global Influenza Programme started a clearing house of Influenza Training materials. This material has been recently updated and new material has been added, including training material from CDC.

"The Influenza Training Digital Library" is now accessible through www.influenzatraining.org

Topics range from animal issues, case investigation, communications, ethical considerations, infection control, public health measures to mitigate the effect of a pandemic to pandemic exercises.

This is a great resource from which to find general information about these topics (e.g. case studies, guidance, background information), in addition to training modules and example plans, forms, and training materials.

The public health measures and pandemic preparedness sections are particularly noteworthy.
