Alberta’s Pandemic Influenza Plan 2014
Alberta’s Pandemic Influenza Plan 2014 (APIP) was developed together by Alberta Health, Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) and Alberta Health Services (AHS). The provincial plan will guide the response and recovery efforts during a pandemic with an emphasis on how these organizations work together. Pandemic influenza planning and preparedness activities are equally important and are incorporated into all-hazards planning as a continuing part of the emergency management cycle.
- Read Alberta's Pandemic Influena Plan 2014 – The 2014 APIP replaces the Alberta’s Plan for Pandemic Influenza (2009), the Alberta Pandemic Influenza Operations plan (2008) and the AHS Pandemic Influenza Plan (2010).
The APIP is reviewed and revised regularly to reflect current knowledge and leading practices. It aligns with the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Canadian Pandemic Influenza Plan (CPIP) and supports coordination between the Government of Alberta and AHS pandemic operational plans. It also serves as a reference for local authorities, business and industry and other stakeholder pandemic operational plans.
The 2014 APIP is significantly updated from the 2009 APIP based on recommendations put forward by the Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) on lessons learned from the 2009 pH1N1 influenza pandemic.
