School-Based Avian Influenza Prevention and Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Planning Project

Jan 26,2023

UNICEF / USAID (2006 – 2009)

Supported by UNICEF and USAID with approximately US $240,000 in funding, Kenan began working in May 2006 with the ministries of education and public health in Thailand and Vietnam to build capacity for life skills-based health education for the prevention of avian and human influenza and to develop a process and manual for school-level influenza pandemic emergency preparedness and response planning.

Under this three-year project, Kenan produced and distributed curriculum and instructional packages on avian and pandemic influenza and guidelines for school pandemic preparedness planning to 32,288 schools. Kenan provided training for 175 school districts, 76 provincial health offices and 12 regional disease control offices in Thailand. The curriculum was also adapted and tested in 100 schools in Vietnam, and Vietnam-adapted guidelines for pandemic pre- paredness planning were later developed and distributed.
