Influencing Flu

This hybrid educational game combines analog and digital elements to make you experience the pressures of an outbreak investigation. Players step in the shoes of local, national and international disease detectives to investigate a severe influenza infection that keeps spreading among the human and animal population.

What will players learn?

  • The roles and responsibilities of organisations at local, national and international levels in outbreak response
  • How time pressure and lack of information affect your ability to agree on a decision to intervene in the transmission of a disease.

The game is ideal to incorporate in a curriculum for medial or public health education. Influencing Flu comes in two versions. The full version that plays in five rounds of 25 minutes covering local, national and international response organisations for human and veterinarian response. The summary version plays in three rounds of 25 minutes.

Influencing Flu is currently available in Dutch (Greep op Griep). An English version will be introduced later in 2019. Contact Pandemos for license information.
