Sinovac initiated the preparatory activities for influenza A (H1N1) vaccine production at the end of April. In May 2009, Sinovac continued to work closely with various Chinese government authorities and other global health organizations in order to monitor the disease and evaluate strategies to control and prevent its transmission. As a member of the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA), Sinovac scientists attended the May 19th WHO/UN Meeting with Influenza A (H1N1) Vaccine Manufacturers, which was held in Geneva to update attendees on the global capacity of influenza vaccines and ensure that the vaccines will be available to developing countries.
