AbstractAn outbreak of febrile respiratory infection was detected in Mexico in March 2009, and later identified to be due to Pandemic H1N1 2009. The World Health Organization declared the Pandemic H1N1 2009 to be a public health emergency of international concern in April 2009. Since then the pandemic has spread far and wide and reached all continents of the globe within a short period of time. In response to requests from Member States of the South-East Asia Region of WHO, a regional consultation on Pandemic H1N1 2009 was organized on 9-11 July 2009 in Bangkok, Thailand. This report provides a summary of the proceedings of the consultative meeting, including situation updates, experiences and lessons learnt, and the strategic actions recommended therein to enhance national capacities in response to the evolving pandemic.
