Monitoring Avian Influenza: A Joint Effort by the MHA and Its Partners

In response to the increasing spread of the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) H5N1, also known as bird flu, across the country, the Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) and its partners are intensifying their surveillance efforts. Fears of the virus transitioning from its animal hosts to humans have amplified the need for stringent infection control mechanisms.

MHA, with the support of reliable data and resources, is responsible for keeping a close watch on the evolving situation. Members who require detailed information or consultative support can reach out to KHA’s Kelsey Ostergren.

The association, in its bid to keep healthcare professionals and the general public informed about current healthcare news and happenings in Michigan, also provides additional channels of communication. These include the ‘MHA Monday Report’ — a weekly newsletter delivered to subscribers — and ‘MiCare Champion Cast,’ a podcast that delves into diverse healthcare topics.

Those interested in accessing these resources merely need to subscribe on their respective platforms. The MHA Monday Report subscription can be secured through their contact form, while the MiCare Champion Cast is accessible on iTunes and SoundCloud.

MHA maintains open communication lines available for queries via phone at their headquarters and their Capitol Advocacy Center in Lansing. They value the standards of their publication policy and guarantee respect for the rights of the public and members. Commitment to privacy, transparency, and accessibility statements highlight their dedication to ethical standards of operation. Queries can also be directed at their headquarters in Okemos, or at the Capitol Advocacy Center in Lansing.
