International Health Regulations (2005)

Third Edition

Publisher:
WHO
Price: £19.00

The purpose and scope of the International Health Regulations (2005) are to prevent, protect against, control and provide a public health response to the international spread of disease in ways that are commensurate with and restricted to public health risks, and which avoid unnecessary interference with international traffic and trade.

Because the International Health Regulations (2005) are not limited to specific diseases but apply to new and ever- changing public health risks, they are intended to have long-lasting relevance in the international response to the emergence and spread of disease. The International Health Regulations (2005) also provide the legal basis for important health documents applicable to international travel and transport and sanitary protections for the users of international airports, ports, and ground crossings.

    • Text of World Health Assembly resolution WHA58.3

    • The Health Part of the Aircraft General Declaration

    • An updated list of States Parties and State Party reservations and other communications in connection with the International Health Regulations (2005)

  • Outlines regulations for providing a public health response to disease spread

  • Outlines regulations on preventing, protecting and controlling disease spread
