The joint action plan includes a step-by-step description of all actions to be taken by school management, teachers, pupils, school nurses and parents. This includes instructions for schools and teachers to prevent the spread of flu, processes for initial management of students with symptoms of influenza-like illness, and instructions for parents to protect their children and family from flu.

Preparation kits encompass detailed risk management information and preparedness resources as well as factsheets in Arabic and English for all schools, teachers, parents and students, developed for distribution. The fact sheets are also available on HAAD's website.
