Ebola publications: Travel and points of entry

Public health emergency plans and standard operational procedures should be in place at designated points of entry, in accordance with international best practices, agreements and the International Health Regulations. The aim is:

  • to provide early detection of potentially infected persons;
  • to assist in implementing WHO recommendations related to Ebola management;
  • and to prevent the international spread of the disease while allowing authorities to avoid unnecessary restrictions and delays at points of entry.
