New Report Finds 10 Early Lessons Learned From the H1N1 Outbreak
Date:6/4/2009

- ensuring that all Americans would be able to be inoculated in a short period of time;
  • Planning and Coordination -- improving coordination among federal, state, and local governments and the private sector preparedness and planning activities on an ongoing basis, including taking into account how the nature of flu threats change over time;
  • School closings, sick leave, and community mitigation strategies -- improving strategies to limit the spread of disease ensuring all working Americans have sick leave benefits and that communities are prepared to limit public gatherings and close schools as necessary;
  • Global coordination -- building trust, technologies, and policies internationally to encourage science-based, consistent decision making across borders during an outbreak;
  • Resources -- providing enough funding for the on-the-ground response, which is currently under funded and overextended;
  • Workforce -- stopping layoffs at state and local health departments and recruiting the next generation of public health professionals;
  • Surge capacity -- improving the ability for health providers to manage a massive influx of patients; and
  • Caring for the uninsured and underinsured -- ensuring that all Americans will receive care during an emergency, which limits the spread of the contagious disease to others, and making sure hospitals and health care providers are compensated for providing care.

  • The full analysis is available on TFAH's Web site at www.healthyamericans.org. The report was supported by a grant from RWJF.
