Abstract:

At the request of Dr. Winkenwerder in a memorandum dated 1 December 2005, the Select Subcommittee on Pandemic Influenza Response and Preparedness was established in order to advise the Surgeons General and Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs on matters related to Department of Defense DoD pandemic influenza preparedness and response. The charge of the Subcommittee included but was not limited to providing recommendations for optimizing influenza surveillance processes and preparations for a pandemic. The Select Subcommittee on Pandemic Influenza Response and Preparedness was renamed the Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Subpanel following the transition of the Armed Forces Epidemiological Board to the Defense Health Board DHB.
