(Jun 29, 2009) Mexico's National Epidemiological Surveillance System (Sistema Nacional de Vigilancia Epidemiológica, SINAVE, http://www.rhove.gob.mx/ (last visited June 19, 2009)) was designated on May 2, 2009, as the exclusive authority for tracking the evolution of the human influenza virus A(H1N1) and as the venue for all information concerning the virus's evolution. (Acuerdo por el que se establece que la plataforma electrónica del Sistema Nacional de Vigilancia Epidemiológica será la única para concentrar toda la información sobre la evolución de la epidemia de influenza humana AH1N1, DIARIO OFICIAL, May 2, 2009, at 30, available at http://www.glin.gov/view.action?glinID=218694.)

SINAVE is a program of action that comprises a set of strategies and activities to identify and detect damage to public health and potential health risks. The use of SINAVE's electronic platform is one of the measures being implemented in order to secure reliable and timely information, which will enable efficient decision making. (Id.) These measures stem from the need to respond to the pandemic of human influenza A(H1N1) and from the provisions contained in a decree issued by the Council for General Health of Mexico on April 25, 2009. (Acuerdo por el que se establecen las actividades de preparación y respuesta ante una pandemia de influenza, DIARIO OFICIAL, Apr. 30, 2009, at 104, available at http://www.glin.gov/view.action?glinID=218560.)
