New Report Finds H1N1 Hospitalization Rates Higher But Vaccination Rates Lower for Minorities
Date:11/10/2010

ling the long-standing public health infrastructure issues;
  • Pandemic and emergency response plans must be adaptable and science-driven;
  • Establishing trust with the public through clear and honest communication is imperative – and the highest-risk groups often have the lowest levels of trust;
  • Recommendations for sick leave, school closings, and limiting community gatherings have major ramifications that must be taken into account;
  • Coordination across communities, states, and countries is extremely complicated, but must be a high priority; and
  • Competing emergency declarations and laws must be better coordinated to avoid confusion and provide protection to volunteers.

  • In addition, the report found key areas that must be at-the-ready for potential emergencies and to respond to the seasonal flu, but are often deficient due to lack of resources, including:

    • Up-to-date and available pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and medical equipment;
    • Surge capacity to provide mass care to patients; and
    • Core public health infrastructure, such as surveillance, laboratory capacity, and workforce.

    The report was supported by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and is available on TFAH's website at www.healthyamericans.org.
