Abstract:

Since the 2006 edition was published, several incidents occurred involving air travel and potential transmission of TB. The revision of the International Health Regulations (IHR), which entered into force in June 2007, provided for the introduction of new measures that might potentially apply to international events involving TB. This edition builds upon the 2006 edition and adds to it in providing: (i) greater clarity in the definition of infectious index cases; (ii) procedures for the follow-up of contacts of infectious cases; and (iii) a more detailed definition of the roles and responsibilities of the agencies involved. The recommendations recognize that the response needs to be proportional to the risk, so that public confidence is preserved and unnecessary restrictions are avoided.--Publisher's description.
