WHO public health research agenda for influenza
The goal of the WHO public health research agenda for influenza is to guide research so that knowledge gained improves public health decision making in the prevention and control of influenza.
Biannual Progress Review and Report
In order to evaluate the impact of WHO’s initiative to encourage research on better prevention and control of influenza globally, a biannual progress review was conducted. WHO Secretariat, with help from the scientific committee, identified high priority public health research topics from the five main research areas (‘Streams’) and commissioned literature reviews for each. Over 4000 citations of publications from 2010–2011 in more than 200 journals or other peer-reviewed publications were found through the literature reviews and database searches for this Progress Report.
