Influenza Sentinel Surveillance System Evaluation and Data Analysis – Nigeria, 2009-2010

Background: Influenza is an epidemic prone disease affecting mainly children and elderly people, causing considerable morbidity and mortality. In 2007 a human case of avian influenza was identified in Nigeria leading to establishment of a sentinel surveillance system in four sites for influenza-like illnesses (ILI) and severe acute respiratory infections (SARI) and a National Influenza Reference Laboratory for influenza virus detection. We evaluated the system and analyzed surveillance data to assess the pattern of influenza in Nigeria.

Evaluation of Laboratory Component of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Surveillance - Nigeria, 2006 to 2009

Background: In 2006, Nigeria reported Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in poultry. In 2007, the first human case was detected linked to poultry from a Live Bird Market (LBM). The West and Central African Regional Laboratory for Avian Influenza in Nigeria is responsible for investigating specimens from birds meeting the case definition of HPAI (passive surveillance) and for specimens collected routinely from LBMs and high risk areas (active HPAI surveillance).

Influenza-Like Illness Seasonality and its Association with Meteorological Variations in Dak Lak Province, Vietnam, 2004-2009

Background: Influenza is a global public health and economic burden. Its patterns of seasonality differ considerably between geographic regions, but the factors underlying these differences are not well understood. Clarifying the potential role of climate factors on incidence of influenza could provide an insight into the mechanisms of the seasonality of the disease. This study documents the activity of influenza-like illness (ILI) in Dak Lak province of Vietnam and examines its temporal association with climate factors.

Epidemiological and Clinical Characteristics of Deaths Attributed to Pandemic Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 in Vietnam

Background: In response to a pandemic, it is critical to identify those developing severe illness, i.e. high risk groups, to whom limited pharmaceutical interventions (drugs and vaccine) should be targeted. We describe epidemiological and clinical characteristics of confirmed fatal cases of pandemic influenza A/H1N1/09 reported in Vietnam from August 2009 through March 2010.

Pandemic Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness in Europe in 2009-10: Results of I-MOVE Multicentre Case-Control Study

Background: Following the emergence of the 2009 pandemic influenza A(H1N1) virus, monovalent influenza vaccines were developed and marketed in Europe. Within the Influenza Monitoring Vaccine Effectiveness in Europe (I-MOVE) project, we estimated the pandemic influenza vaccines effectiveness (PIVE) using sentinel general practitioners (GP) influenza surveillance networks in seven European countries.
