    Abstract

    There is a growing unease among World Health Organisation (WHO) officials and other global disease surveillance organisations that Avian Flu will mutate into a human influenza pandemic. Such is the concern that the Scottish Executive asked public bodies to prepare business continuity plans based upon the National Health Service Scotland‘s contingency plan and scenarios, and this briefing paper is a consequence of that request.
