International Health Regulations: Working Paper for Regional Consultations
Since 1995, WHO has been working on a revision of the International Health Regulations that would address the ever-changing unpredictable problem of the international spread of disease. WHO has now produced a working paper containing a preliminary draft of the proposed revisions. During the first half of 2004, national governments and international bodies will carefully review this draft. The results of this review will form the basis of an amended draft to be put to an International Working Group (IGWG) planned for November 2004. At this IGWG, Member States will be asked to endorse a final draft to be presented to the World Health Assembly in 2005 for adoption.  (15/Dec/2003)
