International Health Regulations Webinar Series

The International Health Regulations (2005) came into effect in 2007 and mandate that each signatory country be capable of detecting, analyzing, reporting, and responding to a public health event of international concern by 2012.  Some countries are capable of this at present, but these are generally clustered in resource-limited settings.  Many more countries will not be fully capable of compliance by 2012, some because of insufficient surveillance systems.

The ISDS Global Outreach Committee, in order to provide a learning opportunity to better understand the IHR requirements and data elements required by the World Health Organization (WHO), has put together a webinar series for summer 2011.

Monday, June 27th, 2011; 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
