Influenza Epidemic

Influenza Epidemic Photo
Influenza epidemics, also known as seasonal flu, occur annually and are the most common emerging infection among humans. These epidemics have major medical impacts, but they are generally not fatal except in certain groups such as the elderly. Emerging and re-emerging epidemic diseases pose an ongoing threat to global health security. The WHO’s twelth general programme of work sets the reduction of “mortality, morbidity and societal disruption resulting from epidemics, through prevention, preparedness, response and recovery activities” as one of its five strategic imperatives.
