Page contents: Victorian Action Plan for Human Influenza Pandemic | Other plans
The Victorian Action Plan for Human Influenza Pandemic (the VAP), formally known as Victorian Human Influenza Pandemic Plan (VHIPP), describes the non health Victorian governance arrangements and key strategies to prepare for, respond to and recover from an influenza pandemic in Victoria. It achieves this by describing the relationship between existing public health and emergency management arrangements and outlining key responsibilities, authorities, mechanisms and actions.
Under the VAP, State Government departments and agencies are responsible for developing and maintaining influenza pandemic plans. Some departments and agencies have specific roles or responsibilities under the Emergency Management Manual of Victoria in supporting the Department of Health, as the control agency, during a pandemic. While outlining these roles, the VAP also assists agencies in preparing their own pandemic incident response plan to manage any business impacts of a pandemic.
The Department of Human Services, in close consultation with the Department of Health, is responsible for the development of the VAP. Any reform of Victoria’s emergency management arrangements as a result of the Emergency Management White Paper and other reviews of influenza pandemic plans at national and state level may result in future changes to the VAP.
This plan has been reviewed and endorsed by the Central Government Response Committee (CGRC) on 13 June 2012.
