ImageA three-day meeting of the Pacific Avian and Pandemic Influenza Taskforce (PAPITaF) took place in Nadi (Fiji Islands) from 25 to 27 May 2010.

Around 60 health professionals, involved in both human and animal health, from 22 Pacific governments and international/regional organisations took part in the discussions. The activities nominated by Pacific Island country and territory representatives during the PAPITaF meeting provide the basis for planning activities for the extension of the Pacific Regional Influenza Pandemic Preparedness Project (PRIPPP) to December 2010.

PRIPPP is a project designed to build the capacity of PICTs to deal with the potential threat of emerging infectious diseases, in particular avian influenza and pandemic influenza. It is implemented by SPC in collaboration with WHO, OIE and FAO. It covers 22 Pacific Island countries and territories.
