The UN has a website currently residing on iSeek that will keep all staff informed worldwide about the spread of the disease and its effect on staff members. In the event that iSeek cannot be accessed remotely, the website will operate in stand-alone mode on the internet. The website will provide information about the current situation for UN personnel in each major duty station of the Secretariat along with appropriate links to the agencies, funds and programmes.
In order to provide you with the most up-to-date information, the UN works closely with WHO, the Organization responsible for moni-toring health and outbreaks of disease worldwide. The UN also works closely with country health authorities, liaising with them regularly on plans for the locales in which the UN has staff. In 2008, the UN published revised Medical Guidelines for a pandemic.
All UN medical services are familiar with these guidelines. The UN has also approved Administrative Guidelines for the management of staff during a pandemic.
