Swine Flu (H1N1) can Become a Major Political Crisis Instead of a Health Crisis by October 2009, Amir Jahangir
Date:8/10/2009

ding to FluNet reporting from the Global Influenza Surveillance Network (GISN), 3548 detections of the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza virus were reported from 13 countries in a recent survey. The majority of detections were reported by China, Hong Kong followed by Australia and Italy Among the 13 countries, on average, the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza virus accounted for 71% of all influenza virus detections (66% in northern hemisphere and 89% in southern hemisphere). The highest rate of detection of pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza virus was reported by Greece.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Amir Jahangir said, "disease outbreaks are eminently newsworthy. The public has a right to be informed and the media is the key partner in the communication triangle with health officials." And that the role of the media is pivotal, particularly at the start of an outbreak, to create a well informed public so that they are equipped to protect themselves from the outbreaks and epidemics."

Mr. Jahangir was addressing a gathering of more then 40 health communications experts, representing the countries in the region of Asia, Middle East and Africa, along with professionals from repesctive governments and World Health Organizations' representatives.

SAMAA TV played a leading role in carrying out awareness campaigns reinforcing the importance of the Polio Eradication Program and encouraging parents and families to call the Polio Control Cell in case of any complaints, requirement of information related to vaccinations or lack of teams visiting their area.

The three countries in Asia that still have polio are on target to end the disease this year. Last year, polio cases in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan were slashed by 45%. Similar momentum and support from the media this year should put an end to the transmission of polio in this particularly populated region of the world, which has proven a challenge to global eradication effort
