Important Note: This document was developed in 2004 using the pandemic phases published by WHO in 1999. Since then, WHO published new pandemic phases in 2005. The publication with the new phases in entitled WHO global influenza preparedness plan. It is available on line (in pdf format).
To facilitate the comparison between the two classifications, WHO prepared a table of comparison that we have adapted for an easier use (word document, 42 KB). This table has already been shared with PICTs' Departments of Health and explained on PacNet.
