As part of the broader planning and communication efforts for pandemic flu, a governance process to guide future development of the site will be instituted. HHS looks forward to active participation by additional agencies. Through this process we expect a more formal lane structure to be established as was used during Hurricane Katrina response, although we have the advantage of a single site and URL to use for planning stages and for a pandemic flu outbreak.
HHS welcomes your input on the existing site. If you have information relating to pandemic flu or avian (bird) flu that you believe should be linked to, please submit your request at http://webrequests.hhs.gov. Please be sure to recommend placement of the link.
At the state level, HHS is especially interested in locating additional state plans for the State Pandemic Plans page at http://www.flu.gov/professional/states/stateplans.html . If a state plan has been withheld from the public web site for security reasons, information on the office people should contact for information is also welcome.
For overall general information on a pandemic influenza, including history or possible new outbreaks, we ask that you link to www.pandemicflu.gov, the official U.S. government Web site for information on pandemic flu and avian influenza. For specific information on the CDC Avian Influenza (Bird Flu) go to http://www.cdc.gov/flu/avian/
