dc.description.abstractDescription: Since 1957, influenza viruses have been shared by Member States through the WHO global influenza surveillance and response network (‎GISRS)‎; however+, in 2007 issues were raised about how this might be linked to access to vaccines and other benefits. To address these issues, World Health Assembly resolution WHA60.28 urged the Director-General to: ¢ develop a framework and mechanism for the sharing of benefits; ¢ establish an international stockpile of influenza A(‎H5N1)‎ vaccine; ¢ prepare guidance on vaccine distribution. The resulting "Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Framework" (‎PIP Framework)‎ is expected to enhance capacity for surveillance, risk assessment and early warning. The objectives of this informal consultation were to review the content of the PIP Framework, develop a consensus on regional implementation priorities, and consider necessary steps to implement the Framework at national and regional levels. Accordingly, a number of key steps were elaborated to take this important work forward.en_US
