International Health Regulation
The International Health Regulations (2005), or IHR, represent an agreement among 196 countries, including all WHO Member States, to work together to protect global health security. They require countries to build core capacities to be better able to protect their citizens, and the citizens of other countries, from the spread of diseases and other health hazards.
The International Health Regulations (2005) entered into force for Brunei Darussalam on 15
June 2007 and the Minister of Health oversees the implementation of the IHR under the Ministry of Health.
