A wide variety of health events ranging in severity may occur related to air transport, requiring different responses or, perhaps, no response at all. The target audience for this guidance document includes the national focal points (NFP) for the IHR and public health authorities at PoE, as well as national aviation regulatory authorities, airport operators and personnel, aircraft operators, air crew and other stakeholders involved in air transport and emergency preparedness and response to public health events. This document is complementary to other WHO publications addressing risk assessment at a national level, contingency planning at PoE, establishment of capacities and application of emergency plans at the airport level.
