2009/05/12 - Facts on Swine Flu

UNICEF is working with its UN partners to prepare for a potential outbreak of swine flu. WHO has raised its pandemic alert from level four to level five, indicating widespread human-to-human transmission and an increased likelihood of a pandemic. "The value of UNICEF, in addition to WHO, is that it has the capacity to work with local communities to get the message through about what people can do to protect themselves," said UNICEF Senior Health Advisor Dr. Osman David Mansoor.
