    What is the IHR Annual Report?

    The 2005 International Health Regulations (IHR) are agreements that have been signed by 196 countries, including all World Health Organization (WHO) members states, to work together for our health security. The agreements are binding and require countries to report certain disease outbreaks and public health events to WHO. The regulations also provide a framework for every country to prepare for epidemics and to work with other countries and groups in the event of a public health emergency. Countries are required to annually self-report their compliance to these regulations to the WHO. We include each country’s annual report results in the “progress” tab to display their yearly trends in epidemic preparedness.
