China’s Institutional Mechanisms for Influenza A (H1N1) Prevention and Control
Innovation in institutional mechanisms is a fundamental issue in effectively dealing with public health emergencies. In the wake of the 2003 SARS Epidemic, China initially established a public health emergency management system and an emergency organization and management network, placing emphasis on “government leading, unified command, local management, responsibility on all levels, management by classifications, and inter-departmental coordination,” which strengthened the existing health emergency preparation system.
