JAMA Commentary Examines Lessons Learned From How Mexico Handled H1N1

September 18, 2009

In a JAMA Commentary, a pair of health experts report their findings from interviews with Mexican citizens and health officials about successes and failures with the country's response to H1N1. Though "[m]uch remains to be learned from the data being gathered on Mexico's public health experiment with nonpharmaceutical interventions ... perhaps the most immediately valuable lesson learned from spring 2009 is that Mexico's transparency and rapid response not only helped other countries react properly but also set a high bar for how the 21st-century global community must cooperate to share information about impending epidemics," the authors conclude (Stern/Markel, 9/16).
