Abstract

INTRODUCTIONInfluenza is an infection of the upper respiratory tract that causes significant morbidity and mortality. Influenza viruses circulate and spread easily from person to person through droplets and aerosols released into the air when coughing or sneezing. Every year Influenza causes outbreaks throughout the world and can seriously affect all populations. In Algeria, influenza is considered as a serious public health problem. Monitoring of seasonal influenza is ensured by a sentinel surveillance network called GROG (Groupe Régional d'Observation de la Grippe). The network aims to detect an epidemic situation through weekly monitoring of influenza‐like illness (ILI), and identify circulating viruses to adapt health measures.Annual vaccination is the most effective method in Algeria for preventing seasonal influenza virus infection. Vaccine policy aims to protect people with high risk of complications in whom influenza can pose a serious risk to health and even death. This vaccine practice is organized throughout the country by the Algerian Ministry of Public Health before influenza season starts. The target groups are those aged 65 years and older, adults and children with chronic diseases, pregnant women, health workers, Haj (pilgrims), and other travellers, with a vaccine coverage rate of 35%.Treatment with antiviral drugs for influenza is
