Handbook for Public Health Capacity-Building at Ground Crossings and Cross-Border Collaboration   [open pdf - 934KB]

From the Introduction: "This handbook follows a comprehensive approach to health system strengthening at borders in order to support IHR [International Health Regulations 2005] national focal points and other national agencies in developing and implementing evidence-based action plans for IHR capacity development at ground crossings. [...] Specifically, the objectives of the handbook are: [1] to introduce principles of strategic risk assessment for prioritizing capacity-building for preparedness and response at ground crossings; [2] to highlight issues to consider when selecting ground crossings for designation under the IHR; [3] to support the establishment and maintenance of cross-border collaboration in order to improve coordination and communication at ground-crossing settings."
