Swine Influenza Containment Strategies

  • Research program: Prevention and early intervention
  • Project status: Completed
  • Start date: July 2009
  • Expected end date: June 2010
  • Completion date: October 2010
  • Funded by: NHMRC
  • Lead organisation:

The national containment strategies for pandemic influenza are highly unlikely to work in rural and remote Indigenous communities. This grant brings together 14 Aboriginal Communities Controlled Health Services from three states (NSW, north Qld, and WA) to work in collaboration with Indigenous communities to develop feasible and effective containment strategies for rural and remote Indigenous communities
