H1N1 Influenza 09 (Human Swine Influenza) in Remote Indigenous Communities

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 33 Issue 4 (July/Aug 2009)

Abstract: There are significant concerns about the implications of widespread transmission of H1N1 influenza 09 in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, highlighted by the recent death of an Indigenous man from Western Australia, the first in Australia. This is consistent with early unconfirmed reports suggesting a high rate of hospitalisation in Indigenous Canadians. Significant concerns have been raised regarding the spread of the H1N1 Influenza 09 (Human Swine Influenza) in remote Indigenous communities in Australia. The main steps that need to be taken by physicians in these areas to help protect the vulnerable people are highlighted.
