ABSTRACT

SARS Commission: SARS and Public Health Legislation, Second Interim Report   [open pdf - 14KB]

"This second interim report deals with legislation to strengthen the 'Health Protection and Promotion Act' and to enact emergency powers for public health disasters like SARS [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome] or flu pandemics. It is produced now to respond to current government plans for further amendments to the 'Health Protection and Promotion Act and radical changes to the Emergency Management Act'. The recommendations in this second report are interim, not final or exhaustive. The report touches only on those issues subjected already to sufficient discussion between the government and the health community to make them ripe for action."
