Pandemic Influenza Preparedness for Faith-Based Organizations

Course Materials

The following materials are available for faith-based organizations. Discussion material is written with an emphasis on churches. However, the course was designed to accommodate congregations, synagogues, mosques and other places of worship.

Note to Instructor: If the intended audience is one other than a church (such as a mosque or synagogue), please adapt talking points accordingly.

Note to Online User: A future goal is to provide examples of completed pandemic preparedness plans by a variety of faith-based organizations. If an example for your organization type is not represented, please check back often; or submit your completed plan so other faith-based organizations like yours can benefit from using yours as an example.
