PRET Module 1: Planning for respiratory pathogen pandemics.
Through technical consultations with countries and partners, WHO has led the development of PRET Module 1 based on pandemic lessons learned and guidance focused on respiratory pathogens.
Respiratory-transmitted pathogens pose a greater pandemic risk due to their difficult control and rapid global spread. Module 1 emphasizes the need for a coherent, multisectoral and collective action approach, contextualizing 12 of the 15 core capacities of the IHR (2005) in five components.
The WHO recommends that countries review and update their planning processes to prepare and ensure the necessary capacities for a next respiratory pandemic.
