SUMMARY: The Office of Public Health Emergency Preparedness (OPHEP) and the Office of Global Health Affairs (OGHA) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces that up to $2,100,000 in fiscal year (FY) 2006 funds is available for a cooperative agreement to provide support to develop a cadre of in-country trainers who can improve their ongoing hospital infection-control programs to achieve better adherence by health-care workers to infection-control and casemanagement principles and practices. This effort is an undertaking by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The project will be approved for up to a program period of three (3) years with a budget period of one-year for a total of $2,100,000. Under certain circumstances especially in support of HHS International efforts, OGHA and OPHEP are required to collaborate on programs, issues and initiatives regarding international public health (i.e. Avian Influenza, disease surveillance, etc.). Normally, OGHA is often tasked as to devise, award, and administer international Federal assistance actions (grants, cooperative agreements, IAA’s, etc.). When emergency preparedness issues are to be addressed as part of the program plan, OGHA partners with OPHEP to provide assistance in ensuring risks mitigation and emergency preparedness elements are included. The Regional Emerging Diseases Intervention (REDI) Center in Singapore will design the program around PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 mentorship principles so trainers can gain advice and support for their efforts in teaching infection-control and casemanagement practices in local languages. While there is no current pandemic influenza outbreak, there is still reason to be concerned about the spread of the H5N1 virus from Southeast Asia to countries in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In the last century, three influenza pandemics have affected the United States, and viruses from birds contributed to all of them. Medical practitioners have also discovered several other, new, avian viruses human beings can transmit among one another. Although the H5N1 virus has primarily infected domesticated birds and longrange migratory birds, the virus has demonstrated the ability to infect and produce fatal illness in humans. Influenza experts believe an avian virus could become efficiently transmissible between humans, and result in a worldwide outbreak, which would overwhelm health and medical capabilities. Furthermore, an influenza pandemic could result in hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of hospitalizations, and hundreds of billions of dollars in direct costs in the United States alone. On November 1, 2005, President Bush announced the National Strategy on Pandemic Influenza, and the following day Secretary Michael O. Leavitt released the HHS Pandemic Influenza Plan. Building on these efforts, President Bush released the Implementation Plan for the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza on May 3, 2006, which describes more than 300 critical actions to address the threat of pandemic influenza. All relevant Federal Departments and agencies must take steps to address the threat of avian and pandemic influenza. Drawing on the combined efforts of Government officials and the public-health, medical, veterinary, and law-enforcement communities, as well as the private sector, this strategy is designed to meet three critical goals: Detecting human or animal outbreaks that occur anywhere in the world; protecting the American people by stockpiling vaccines and antiviral drugs, while improving the capacity to produce new vaccines; and preparing to respond at the Federal, State, and local levels in the event an avian or pandemic influenza reaches the United States. HHS technical expertise in applied epidemiology, rapid laboratory diagnostics, infection control, virology research, vaccine delivery, and other areas is a critical component of both the domestic and the international E:\FR\FM\02OCN1.SGM 02OCN1
