Caribbean Fears Bird Flu Arrival

St. John´s, Apr 14 (Prensa Latina) The government of Antigua and Barbuda expects to have a clearer idea of Caribbean preparation for an eventual bird-flu outbreak, and the technical aid that could require the help of international organizations.


An official communiqué reveals that expectations have grown due to next Tuesday´s Pan American Health Organization meeting in Bogota, Colombia.

The meeting will include a test of medical service network readiness and the strategic-operational plan coordinated by PAHO in the regional countries.

Those in charge of medical services and experts in treatment and control of infections in the Caribbean nations will attend the meeting.

In line with its purpose of preparing the Caribbean to face an epidemic, the organization is trying to conclude the implementation of national plans in July.
