Description: The document contains the following: Introduction; Influenza outbreaks and impact on communities; Key interventions and messages for the prevention and control of an influenza outbreak in the community and the home; Assessment and treatment of diseases in the community and the home; Community health education and social mobilization; Protection of the community health worker; A framework for monitoring and reporting of influenza outbreak preparedness and response activities.

Community health workers (CHWs) can be the front-line health workers during an outbreak of communicable disease or other emergencies, alleviating the strain and demand on health-care workers in hospitals, clinics and other institutions when the health system is overwhelmed or disrupted. CHWs can also improve access to prevention and treatment of epidemic diseases and other common illnesses, and have close links to the community for implementing public health programmes and ensuring community participation. These training materials have been developed specifically for CHWs to ensure that they are ready to provide health services to communities in conjunction with home-based and other levels of care.

Description: Communication strategies serve as an integral component of national pandemic influenza plans, enabling ideas to be turned into actions. Given the potential impact of pandemic influenza, detailed plans on what to communicate, how to do it, to whom and by who must be planned and repeatedly revised-for all pandemic phases and for all audiences. The following is a guide and some considerations for creating a communication strategy and a preparedness check off list. Each section focuses on a target audience and will require an action plan detailing how each activity will be carried out. The plan also should include the goals, methods, participants and costs for each activity. Subsequent annexes serve as examples and provide additional information on such topics as key messages, ways of dealing with the media, and basic aspects of risk communication.

Description: Guide on effective media communication during a public health emergency
Abstract: The handbook describes a seven-step process to help public health officials and others to communicate effectively through the media during emergencies. The process is based upon the belief that it is better to take action to positively guide events and situations before they occur than to respond after they develop. By implementing such an approach, public health organizations and officials will be in a much stronger position to guide media coverage and ensure that their messages become highly visible and clearly heard.
