dc.description.abstractAccurate diagnosis becomes an essential first step for case management and also to apply other public health measures aimed at preventing and controlling a communicable disease such as avian influenza. When dealing with a condition that exhibits a pandemic potential, extra stringent care is needed in handling patients and materials used in making the laboratory diagnosis. This publication outlines in a concise manner the type of laboratory to use for making the diagnosis; specimen of choice; collecting and handling of specimens and clinico-epidemiological data for use by the laboratory and their safe transportation, appropriate laboratory tests and its interpretation.en_US
