The WHO avian flu homepage

This page is the starting point for all World Health Organization (WHO) information about avian flu. The WHO focuses on bird flu's relevance to human health; it is coordinating the global response to human cases of H5N1 avian flu and monitoring the corresponding threat of an influenza pandemic. This website has 'situation updates' in the centre of the page, below which are relevant WHO press releases, meetings and speeches. Links down the right hand side of the page provide access to technical guidelines, information for the general public, and region-specific webpages about avian flu. {{LINK_LABEL_GO_TO_WEBSITE}}
