Abstract

The 1918 H1N1 pandemic caused an unprecedented number of deaths worldwide. The tools to deal with the global emergency were limited; there were insufficient surveillance systems and a dearth of diagnostic, treatment, and prevention options. With continuing focus on pandemic planning, technologic advances in surveillance, vaccine capabilities, and 21st century medical care and countermeasures, we are more prepared for a severe pandemic than people were 100 years ago; however, notable gaps remain.
