Obligations to Report Outbreaks of Foodborne Disease under the International Health Regulations (2005)

Kirk, Martyn; Musto, Jennie; Gregory, Joy; Fullerton, Kathleen


Every year, Australia identifies 2-3 outbreaks associated with imported foods. To examine national authorities' obligations under the International Health Regulations (2005), we reviewed outbreaks in 2001-2007 that implicated internationally distributed foods. Under these regulations, 7 (50%) of 14 outbreaks would have required notification to the World Health Organization.
