IOM report details H1N1 resources

Now, IOM has assembled relevant flu pandemic research from the past few years in one handy guide (pdf). The guide focuses on issues that would be particularly useful when preparing for a fast approaching pandemic, including public communication, physical and medical prevention measures, school closings and other 'outbreak mitigation' measures, and monitoring.
