158.0 Health Administration Business Meeting II: Food Scarcity in Virulent Influenza Pandemics - A Facilitated Workshop

Sunday, October 28, 2012: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Business Meeting
This session will consist of a facilitated workshop in which participants will identify the threats to food security during a highly-virulent influenza pandemic and brainstorm potential solutions. After the session has concluded, all interested participants will be invited to participate in winnowing down and elaborating upon these potential solutions through a nominal group technique, and to serve as co-authors on a consensus paper proposing a course of action. Prospective participants are asked to prepare by reading the paper “Food, Nutrition and Livelihood Preparedness For A Pandemic Influenza Disaster Guidance For Low-Income Countries” by Steve Hansch and the H2P Food Security Working Group. The paper can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/Hansch2008
