Strengthening health security by implementing the International Health Regulations (2005)

Technical information


The IHR call on countries to strengthen their national public health systems for disease surveillance and response so that they can more rapidly detect, assess and respond to public health threats and prevent their international spread.

In this section you will find documents, technical material and links to websites countries may find useful to refer to in their endeavour to meet the requirements laid out in the Regulations to strengthen their national health systems.
