Information on H1N1 Influenza 09 (Human Swine Flu) For PRIMA2009 Delegates

The PRIMA2009 Local Arrangements Committee has received a number of enquires regarding the current status of the H1N1 Influenza 09 (Human Swine Flu) in Sydney. This page contains some useful links to information on this for PRIMA2009 delegates.

We currently do not expect there to be any significant impact on PRIMA2009, however, we will be providing delegates with information and access to basic infection control measures such as hand sterilisation gels.
