International Health Regulations (2005)

The International Health Regulations (2005) or IHR (2005) is a legally-binding international agreement which aims to improve the capacity of all countries to detect, assess, notify and respond to public health threats which may have international impact.


The purpose of the IHR (2005) is to prevent the international spread of disease in ways which avoid unnecessary interference with international traffic and trade.


Compliance with the IHR (2005) requires Trinidad and Tobago to develop and maintain specific capacities to detect, report and respond to public health threats from biological, chemical, radiological and nuclear agents, especially at its airports and seaports.
