1) SADC PRESS RELEASE ON SWINE FLU The SADC Ministers responsible for Health note the recent reports of Swine Flu
(H1N1) outbreaks in Mexico, United States of America and Canada among others. 
As SADC Ministers of Health we are concerned by the increase in the number of
cases, deaths and the unusual age group affected (healthy young adults).  In
light of the above, we the SADC Ministers of Health advise as follows: Travel Precautions:  Unless necessary, all travelers are advised to avoid or postpone travel to
affected areas.  In the event of traveling to the affected areas travelers
should visit their nearest health facility for advice on precautionary
measures to be taken.  Recent travelers to the affected countries should be on
the alert for Flu-like symptoms such as fever, muscle aches, nausea, coughing,
fatigue, and general feeling of un-wellness, and visit the nearest health
facility for immediate attention when such symptoms develop.  Response: We are working closely with the World Health Organization (WHO) and our
surveillance systems are on high alert. We will continuously monitor the
situation and use existing National and Regional Policies and Guidelines for
the prevention and control of any outbreak in line with the SADC Highly
Pathogenic Avian and Pandemic Human Influenza Preparedness and Response Plan. As SADC Ministers, we wish to inform the public that all countries within the
Region have Epidemic Preparedness and Response Plans and Teams in place. 
There is no effective vaccine to prevent Swine Flu.  However, it is treatable,
and a Technical Team is in place to facilitate the availability of treatment
in all SADC Countries. 
 
As the SADC region we remain vigilant and committed to prevent and address any
potential outbreak in the region. SADC MINISTERS RESPONSIBLE FOR HEALTH
