Canada to stage international anti-flu conference

A Canadian Press story (no doubt by Helen Branswell) reports that Canada will stage an international meeting to advance flu pandemic preparations.

Health ministers from 20-plus developed and developing countries will meet in Canada next month to work on ways to enhance global capacity to respond to an influenza pandemic, federal government sources revealed Tuesday.

A critical element of the meeting will be identifying ways to help developing countries shore up their responses to a flu pandemic, said a senior government official, who asked not to be identified.

like an important event, and of course I'll try to follow it as closely as possible.
