A pandemic is the outbreak of a disease on a worldwide scale. A pandemic occurs when a new strain of virus emerges for which there is little or no immunity in the population, and which is readily transferred between humans to produce infection in a high proportion of those exposed.

In the event of a pandemic, it is likely that small organisations with limited resources will particularly feel the impact. Even the loss of a few key employees, volunteers or suppliers has the potential to cause major disruptions to an organisation’s ability to function. With these factors in mind, non-government organisations should consider developing business continuity and pandemic plans and work closely with local government to manage the effects.
Business Continuity Guide for Australian Business (PDF) - aims to help Australian businesses consider what impact a human influenza pandemic might have on their businesses, and to help them take appropriate actions to prepare themselves.
