SUBJECT: ROMANIA - OUTBREAK COMMUNICATION STRATEGY IN EARLY STAGES

REF: A) STATE 46669

1) The GOR issued a government order on October 13, 2005 (Government
Order 1094) containing Romania's National Strategy for Pandemic
Influenza. The order outlines in a general manner a response
strategy and designates responsible government bodies. The plan
makes general reference to communication.

2) The GOR has a draft "Communication Strategy and Plan for
Prevention of Avian and Human Influenza." The plan was developed in
July 2006 by a WHO communication expert and financed by UNICEF.
USAID consulted and provided input on the plan. Unfortunately, the
Romanian Ministry of Health has yet to adopt the plan, which adheres
to WHO best practices for effective communication. Once the GOR
adopts the plan, it will need to allocate significant human and
financial resources to fully implement the provisions.

3) Post will send the above referenced documents (in English) to
AIAG via email.
