Pandemic Planning Tool for First Nations Communities

 

FNHMA is pleased to announce the Pandemic Planning Tool for First Nations Communities. This tool is available to all First Nations communities, free of charge, in order to help them create their very own pandemic plan efficiently and effectively.

COVID-19 has caused much uncertainty about how everyone can help protect our communities from contagious and infectious diseases now and in the future. FNHMA hopes that this new tool will help First Nations communities plan their pandemic responses.

The Pandemic Planning Tool for First Nations Communities includes the basics of developing a Community Pandemic Plan and can complement what you already have in place. It is based on the belief that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. That is why this tool focuses on identifying risks and planning to avoid or mitigate them.

A Community Pandemic Plan is usually part of an overall Community Emergency Plan, and as such, supports a more coordinated approach.

This tool will serve health directors, program managers and community health representatives alike; not only to enhance their knowledge, but to hone their skills and abilities, as well as to help them continue to drive change and build healthier communities.
