Introduction: Pandemic influenza has always been a common problem of human societies. Preparedness for dealing with massive economic and social crisis that simultaneously causes a worldwide involve-ment requires a readiness and on-time response. This study was conducted to evaluate the level of preparedness of schools and universities against pandemic influenza in Ilam (western Iran). Materials & Methods: This cross sectional study was designed and developed by the researchers to determine the level of prep-aredness of schools and universities against pandemic influenza H1N1.In this study, plan documents for dealing with H1N1 flu were surveyed by using a modified version of CDC and WHO check lists. Findings: The mean preparedness score of schools was based on the CDC and WHO checklists respectively, 78/9 (±11/9) and 73/4 (±9/6), and for the universities 67/42 (±13/9) and 49/44 (±16/1). In general, we found that the schools preparedness was “high“but preparedness of the universities was”low”. There was a significant statistical difference among the preparedness levels of the elementary, guidance, and high schools, (p=0 /04). Discussion & Conclusion: Despite the good level of schools, the universities prepared-ness level was "low" and the major problem was accounted for education and planning to deal with pandemic flu.
