Sign up for updates from watchdog organization, The Sunshine Project, about Influenza Research
This discussion list, “Influenza Virus Sharing and Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from Influenza Research”, is for news and discussion of international public health policy issues
related to sharing of potentially pandemic influenza viruses, particularly H5N1 avian influenza.
This list will feature news concerning World Health Organization (WHO) negotiations to reform and/or replace the Global Influenza Surveillance Network (GISN), intellectual property (patent)
claims on flu viruses, virus transfer agreements and traceability, statements by governments, and other items of policy interest. An effort will be made to post information on new human cases of
H5N1, however, tracking the latest in flu epidemiology is not the primary purpose of this list.
This is an open list, and subscribers are encourage to post (properly-attributed) news. Comments and discussion are allowed, pointless bickering is not. List management is active to ensure a
civilized and on-topic forum.
