CD Experts praise NZ's readiness for influenza pandemic

New Zealand's preparedness for an influenza pandemic has been praised by medical researchers who raised fears about other countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

In an article published today in The Lancet medical journal, Richard Coker and Sandra Mounier-Jack, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, wrote that New Zealand, along with Australia and Hong Kong, had taken a "strategic approach aimed mainly at harnessing available resources or preparing for the the deployment of resources," they wrote.

"The plans of Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand compared favourably with the best European plans."
