AbstractAlthough public health practitioners had previously enjoyed a period of rapid deployment of advanced surveillance systems, many agencies are struggling to maintain comprehensive flu surveillance programs in the face of funding cutbacks. This workshop is organized to facilitate discussions on whether successful novel flu surveillance can still be conducted by jurisdictions with limited resources. The discussions will focus on gathering opinions regarding the best combination of surveillance systems to quickly and efficiently identify the presence of H3N2v and other novel influenza A viruses.
