  • 3. What is global health? IOM defines GH as: Health problems, issues, and concerns that go above national boundaries, which may be influenced by circumstances or experiences in other countries, and which are best addressed by cooperative actions and solutions (Institute Of Medicine, USA- 1997)3 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 4. Global Health Issues Refers to any health issue that concerns many countries or is affected by transnational determinants such as: • Climate change • Urbanisation • Malnutrition – under or over nutritionOr solutions such as: • Polio eradication • Containment of avian influenza • Approaches to tobacco control4 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 5. Historical Development of Term Public Health: Developed as a discipline in the mid 19th century in UK, Europe and US. Concerned more with national issues. • Data and evidence to support action, focus on populations, social justice and equity, emphasis on preventions vs cure. International Health: Developed during past decades, came to be more concerned with • the diseases (e.g. tropical diseases) and • conditions (war, natural disasters) of middle and low income countries. • Tended to denote a one way flow of ‘good ideas’.5 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 6. Global Health: More recent in its origin and emphasises a greater scope of health problems and solutions • that transcend national boundaries • requiring greater inter-disciplinary approach Disciplines involved in Global Health Social sciences Behavioural sciences Law Economics History Engineering Biomedical sciences Environmental sciences6 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 7. Global threats: why are we concerned?_ Epidemics not new, but….took days, weeks/months to reach farterritories_ Emergence/re-emergence of infectious diseases and increasedpace of spread_ Threat of deliberate use of biological and chemical agents_ Impact on health, economy, securityWhat are IHR (2005)? A global framework_ Legally-binding global agreement to protect public health_ The international commitment for shared responsibilities andcollective defense against disease spread.7 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 8. Why have IHR (2005)? _ Serious and unusual disease events are increasing and inevitable _ Globalisation– public health event in one location can be a threat to others _ Need for collective effort and agreed rules – strong national public health system– international alert & response system8 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 9. The International Health Regulations (IHR)are an international legal instrument that isbinding on 194 countries across the globe,including all the Member States of WHO.Their aim is to help the internationalcommunity prevent and respond to acutepublic health risks that have the potential tocross borders and threaten peopleworldwide.‫اللوائح الصحية الدولية هي صك قانوني دولي ملزم ل 491 ً في جميع أنحاء العالم،ًبما فيها الدول األعضاء في منظمة الصحة العالمية .والغرض من هذه اللوائح‬ ‫بلدا‬ ً .‫هو مساعدةًالمجتمع الدولي على منع ومواجهة المخاطر الصحية العمومية القادرة على االنتشار عبرًالحدود وتهديد الناس في شتى أرجاء العالم‬9 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 10. Scope of IHR (2005) _ “Disease” under IHR (2005): – “an illness or medical condition, irrespective of origin or source that presents or could present significant harm to humans” _ Notification: All events that may constitute a public healthً emergency of international concern (PHEIC)Purpose of IHR (2005)“To prevent, protect against, control and provide a public healthresponse to the international spread of disease in ways that arematching with and restricted to public health risks, and _ which avoidunnecessary interference with international traffic and trade” –(Article 2) ً10 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013

  • 14. Public Health Emergency of International Concern ( PHEIC )Compliance with IHR (2005) implies that all member States musthave implemented at national level the capacity to:• detect events that may constitute a threat to public health;• determine if this could be a risk at an international level;• organize a response in order to contain the event at the source.14 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 15. “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” meansan extraordinary event which is determined, as provided inthese Regulations:• to constitute a public health risk to other States throughthe international spread of disease, and• to potentially require a coordinated internationalresponse.15 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 16. What is a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC)?16 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 17. The determination if the event constitutes a PHEIC is madeon the basis of four criteria:1.seriousness of the public health event;2. unusual or unexpected nature of the event;3. potential for the event to spread internationally;4. risk that the event may result in restrictions to travel or trade. Answering yes to any two of these questions will lead to obligation for the IHR Focal Point to report the event to WHO as a PHEIC.17 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 18. ًIHR is not a substitute for nationalsurveillance and response systems� IHR is about preventing the international spread ofdiseases� IHR is not about a global surveillance system� But IHR seeks that all Member States be able to timelydetect, assess, notify and report events and respond topublic health risks and public health emergency ofinternational concern (PHEIC) ً ً18 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 19. IHR (2005) core capacities requirements for surveillance and responseCommunity level and/or primary public health response level– To detect events involving disease or death above expected levels, report to thelocal health personnel and implement preliminary control measuresIntermediate public health response levels– To confirm the status of reported events and implement control measuresNational level (on a 24-hour basis)– To assess all reports of urgent events within 48 hours and notify the WHOimmediately through the national IHR focal point when required.– To rapidly determine the control measures required to prevent domestic andinternational spread– To provide direct operational links with senior decision makers and provide liaisonwith other sectors– To establish, operate and maintain a national public health emergency response plan. ً19 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013

Diseases that always lead to the use ofthe algorithm : cholera, pneumonique plague, yellow fever, VHF (Ebola, Lassa,Marburg), WNF, meningitis, others25 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 26. Exercise # 1Answer the following question by Using the decision tool (annex 2) of IHR-2005 Mexican CandyCalifornia often experiences instances where candy imported from Mexico testshigh for lead that can result in poisonings in children. Would this be reportableunder the IHR (2005)?26 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 27. Ex. #1 : Mexican CandyTo determine whether an event would be reportable under the IHR (2005), thecircumstances of the event would have to be assessed within the context of thedecision algorithm in Annex 2 of the IHR (2005) document. To be considered apotential Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), the event wouldhave to meet two of the four criteria (questions) in the decision algorithm.Question # 1 could be answered with a "Yes" since the scenario involves a toxicmaterial that has the potential to contaminate a population (in this case, the populationclose to the border) or large geographic area.Question # 3 could be answered with a "Yes" since the contaminated candy isexported to the U.S. and possibly other countries.Question #4 could be answered with a "Yes" because the likely response is for thecontaminated candy to be identified as dangerous and subject to regulatory actions byappropriate U.S. agencies.27 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 28. Case definitions for the four diseases requiring notification to WHOin all circumstances under the IHR (2005)Under the International Health Regulations 2005 (IHR 2005), the World HealthOrganization is to establish case definitions for the following four critical diseaseswhich are deemed always to be unusual or unexpected and may have serious publichealth impact, and hence must be notified to WHO in all circumstances:  smallpox  poliomyelitis due to wild type poliovirus  human influenza caused by a new subtype, and  severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). ً ً28 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 29. Case definitions for the four diseases requiring notification in all circumstances under the IHR (2005)29 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 30. A) Human influenza caused by a new subtypeCase definition for notification of human influenzacaused by a new subtype under the IHR (2005)State Parties to the IHR (2005) are required to immediately notify WHO of anylaboratory confirmed case of a recent human infection caused by an influenza A viruswith the potential to cause a pandemic. Evidence of illness is not required for thisreport.An influenza A virus is considered to have the potential to cause a pandemic if thevirus has demonstrated the capacity to infect a human and if the heamagglutinin gene(or protein) is not a variant or mutated form of those, i.e. A/H1 or A/H3, circulatingwidely in the human population.An infection is considered recent if it has been confirmed by positive results frompolymerase chain reaction (PCR), virus isolation, or paired acute and convalescentserologic tests. An antibody titre in a single serum is often not enough to confirm arecent infection, and should be assessed by reference to valid WHO case definitions forhuman infections with specific influenza A subtypes.30 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 31. B) Poliomyelitis due to wild-type poliovirusUnder the IHR (2005), a notifiable case of poliomyelitis due to wild-typepoliovirus is defined as a suspected case* with isolation of wild poliovirus instool specimens collected from the suspected case or from a close contact ofthe suspected case.C) SARS Case definitionIn the SARS post-outbreak period, a notifiable case of SARS is defined as anindividual with laboratory confirmation of infection with SARS coronavirus(SARS-CoV) who either fulfils the clinical case definition of SARS or hasworked in a laboratory working with live SARS-CoV or storing clinicalspecimens infected with SARS-CoV.31 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013

One or more symptoms of lower respiratory tract illness (cough, difficultybreathing, shortness of breath)AND: 3. Radiographic evidence of lung infiltrates consistent with pneumoniaor acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) or autopsy findings consistentwith the pathology of pneumonia or ARDS without an identifiable causeAND4. No alternative diagnosis can fully explain the illness.Diagnostic tests required for laboratory confirmation of SARS:A) Conventional reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction(RT-PCR) and real-time reverse transcriptase PCR (real-time RT-PCR) assay detecting viral RNA present in:1. At least two different clinical specimens (e.g. nasopharyngeal and stool)32 WWW.SlideShare.net/AhmedRefat 04/2013
  • 33. OR2. The same clinical specimen collected on two or more occasions during thecourse of the illness (e.g. sequential nasopharyngeal aspirates)OR3.
