The 2009 influenza pandemic, like all emerging infections, had unique characteristics and challenges. This book examines the epidemiology, clinical manifestations and outcome of the 2009 pandemic as compared to seasonal influenza and previous pandemics in both developed and developing countries. Consideration is given to the effectiveness of pre-pandemic planning in mitigating the severity of the disease and what can be done differently to lessen the impact of the next pandemic. As such, the book is designed to provide insight about what can be done going forward to further impact the morbidity and mortality due to both seasonal and pandemic influenza and many of these lessons can be applied to other emerging infections. Contents: Background Information on Seasonal Influenza and Previous Pandemics; Pandemic Planning that Occurred Prior to the 2009 Pandemic; Analysis of the Effectiveness of the Pandemic Plan; The Beginning of the 2009 Pandemic; The Epidemiology, Clinical Manifestations and Outcomes of the First and Second Wave of the 2009 Pandemic & Research and Policy Changes Needed to More Effectively Mitigate the Impact of the Next Pandemic.
