The disease spreads easily person-to-person, causes serious illness, and can sweep across the country and around the world in a very short time.

Another key element in exercise program development is developing a multi-year training and exercise plan.

This allows key stakeholders to identify specific needs, priorities, and direction for enhancing preparedness goals.

We outline the evolution of US pandemic planning since the late 1970s, summarize planning accomplishments, and explain their ongoing importance.

Pandemic Influenza Planning, United States, 1978–2008. Several events have since stimulated progress in public health emergency planning: the 1997 avian influenza A(H5N1) outbreak in Hong Kong, China; the 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States; the 2003 outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome; and the 2003 reemergence of influenza A(H5N1) virus infection in humans.
