Welcome to the Idaho Health Alert Network (Idaho HAN) website. The Health Alert Network is sponsored by the Idaho Department of
Health and Welfare's (IDHW) Health Preparedness Program and was established under a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
The Idaho HAN system is an automated system designed to rapidly deliver time-critical, health-related information to designated
health partners. When a health threat is identified, IDHW sends an e-mail or fax message to district public health departments.
District public health departments pass this information on through e-mail or fax to hospitals, clinics, physicians, and other
appropriate health care providers. In addition, information on the HAN website summarizes the event and provides background and
guidelines for public health staff and clinicians.
