The influenza pandemic of 2009 turned out to be far milder than anticipated. Developing countries with other disease priorities were urged to pour resources into pandemic planning exercises and change poultry-raising practices. The article argues that for an issue to be securitized as a global health threat, the US [must] take the lead role. It uses the Copenhagen School's analysis to examine how avian and pandemic influenza was securitized in the US, and then uses the concept of framing to examine why this disease was securitized by looking at the prior existence of an issue culture or discourse around emerging infectious diseases, which gained salience after the 2011 anthrax attacks.
