This report was prepared by the National Consensus Panel on Emergency Preparedness and Cultural Diversity, established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It examines the peer-reviewed evidence of racial and ethnic disparities in morbidity and mortality during the 2009-2010 H1N1 pandemic and reasons for the observed disparities and offers “recommendations for integrating diversity and equity into pandemic influenza planning and response.”
