Communicable Disease Emergencies (CDE) - Pandemic Influenza
CDE initiative is responsible for ensuring that the special considerations and needs of First Nations communities are reflected in overall pandemic influenza planning, for which the Public Health Agency of Canada is the lead. In First Nation communities, the initiative supports the development, strengthening and testing of community pandemic plans. In the event of an influenza pandemic, it also supports communities’ responses.
On-reserve First Nations communities.
