The outbreak of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in 2003 has taught Singapore a valuable lesson. As a nation, Singapore has also weathered other pandemic outbreaks such as the Influenza H1N1 & H1N5. No one knows when the next influenza will hit us, and there could be a possibility that we could face a more deadly and highly infectious influenza pandemic. 

The big question is: “In the event of a pandemic outbreak, is your organisation prepared?”.  On the same note the ongoing haze situation has been a national issue and concern for decades and organisations in private and public sectors have been activating contingency plans to handle the situation. Both Pandemic and Haze focus on people contingency – can we develop a plan to address both?  Address your concerns at this workshop!
