The PIP Framework brings together Member States, industry, other stakeholders and WHO to implement a global approach to pandemic influenza preparedness and response. Its key goals include:
- to improve and strengthen the sharing of influenza viruses with human pandemic potential; and
- to increase the access of developing countries to vaccines and other pandemic related supplies.
The Framework was developed by Member States. It became effective on 24 May 2011 when it was unanimously adopted by the Sixty-fourth World Health Assembly.
