USDA's Veterinary Services (VS) has developed and implemented a voluntary surveillance plan for swine influenza virus (SIV), including the pandemic H1N1 2009 virus1 (pH1N1), in swine.

The immediate goals of the surveillance program are to:
1. Determine if the pH1N1 virus strain currently exists in U.S. swine;
2. If the pH1N1 strain is present, determine the distribution to inform further policy decisions;
3. Detect other novel influenza virus strains in swine in a timely manner; and
4. Determine genetic characteristics of novel viruses necessary for vaccine and diagnostics development.
