TBE Meningococcal Disease Influenza Smallpox

  Global Control by the WHO

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), prevention and control are the only realistic means of dealing with influenza.

The WHO has been operating an international network for influenza surveillance since 1948. This network consists of 112 National Influenza Centers in 83 countries and 4 WHO Collaborating Centers for Virus Reference and Research located in Melbourne, Australia; Tokyo, Japan; London; and Atlanta, USA. Their common goal is to monitor influenza activity and prepare for the next influenza pandemic. The National Influenza Centers are constantly isolating influenza viruses from humans and animals so that emerging strains are rapidly identified and appropriate measures can be taken within a short time, throughout all regions of the world.
