Health Promotion Board, Singapore: Lists of Notifiable Diseases Under the Infectious Diseases Act

To prevent such a scenario from happening, one measure taken by some countries is to mandate certain infectious diseases as notifiable by law. Typically, such infectious diseases are easily transmittable among humans. Not wanting to take any threat to public health lightly, the world has been implementing the International Health Regulations. This set of regulations, implemented since 15 June 2007, is a legally-binding agreement that provides a new framework for countries to address public health threats.
