  20. IDECG Decision Tree

  21. IDECG Decision Tree

  22. IDECG Decision Tree • Might the event have a serious public health impact across the border? • Event due to unknown agent with unpredictable public health impact • Event due to known agent with the following factors: • Unusual disease pattern • Previously eradicated agent • Known agent, but new for the geographical region • Potential to cause epidemic, even if no or few human cases are being identified • Indication of treatment failure • Known potential to cause severe illness • Accidental or intentional release of dangerous, banned or restricted chemical or radioactive agent

  23. IDECG Decision Tree

  24. IDECG Decision Tree • Is there significant risk of international spread? • Evidence of epidemiological link to similar events in other countries • Need to alert in regard to the potential for cross border movement of the agent, vehicle or host • Cross border assistance is needed to detect, investigate, respond and control the current event, or prevent new cases. • Inadequate human, financial, material or technical resources

  25. IDECG Decision Tree

  26. IDECG Decision Tree • Might international travel or trade restriction be necessary? • Similar events in the past have resulted in international restriction on trade and/or travel across the border • The source is suspected or known to be a food product, water or any other goods that might be contaminated that has been exported/imported across the border • The event might have occurred in association with an international gathering • The event has caused requests for more information by cross border officials or media
