United States Mexico Guidelines for Cooperation

U.S. — Mexico Guidelines for Cooperation on Public Health Events of Mutual Interest

The guidelines were developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Secretariat of Health of Mexico, and were formally adopted by both countries through a Letter of Intent at the World Health Assembly on May 22, 2012.

See the Letter of Intent

The guidelines provide a framework for

  • ongoing exchange of binationally relevant epidemiologic information, and
  • jointly coordinated responses to public health events that affect both countries.

The framework covers routine events, such as the regular movement of people across the border who require follow-up for tuberculosis, and emergency events, such as response to pandemic H1N1 influenza.
