The Sasakawa Peace Foundation has been working on pandemic issues since 2008 under its Non-Traditional Security Issues program.

As an important pillar of the project, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine has conducted studies on risk factors of pneumonia during the pandemic (H1N1) in 2009, as well as pilot studies on surveillance and education in Eastern Visayas Region (Region VIII) in the Philippines.

In order to share the findings from the project and discuss lessons learned together with future perspectives among Asian countries, the University and the Sasakawa Peace Foundation held an international workshop on H1N1 in February 2011, in Manila. This report is a summary of speakers' presentations and panel discussions at the workshop.

We hope the discussions will be shared with various stakeholders in Asian countries and will contribute to better local preparedness against emerging infectious diseases including H5N1 in the region.
