Humanitarian Pandemic Preparedness (H2P): Red Cross Annual Report

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is supporting National Societies with financial and technical support, to prepare for, and respond to, an outbreak of pandemic influenza in their countries.

Essential to the program's success is ongoing collaboration and coordination with multiple implementing partners, including NGOs (including CARE), UN agencies, local governments and Movement partners. National Societies implementing H2P projects are developing pandemic preparedness and response plans, training staff and volunteers, providing consistent messages to their communities, in addition to the ongoing in-country coordination with all stakeholders. Health, Food Security, Livelihoods and Communications working groups consisting of IFRC and partner organizations have developed tools, materials, guidelines and a website for pandemic preparedness and response efforts
