About IHR (2005)

In today’s globalized world, the IHR (2005) provide a legal framework for the international community to improve its collective defences against public health emergencies that can have devastating impact on human health and economies.

The IHR (2005) requirements present an opportunity to strengthen the existing public health framework in Trinidad and Tobago. Given the range of health and non-health stakeholders, a coordinated, collaborative, multisectoral approach is central to the successful and sustained implementation of the IHR (2005).

Having faced the threat of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in 2003, pandemic influenza (H1N1) in 2009 and the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in 2014, all countries must continue to strengthen their ability to detect and respond to public health emergencies of international concern.
