Human rights considerations with regard to pandemic influenza The last decade has seen a number of major health scares around potential outbreaks of some form of pandemic influenza. The development of responses to HIV/ AIDS established new standards in the way people were treated, including confidentiality, informed consent to testing and so on. Older, more coercive public health
