The transmission of Ebola virus disease across country borders remains a risk, and should be taken into account when planning international meetings and large mass gatherings.

This interim guidance is aimed at assisting organizers of international meetings attended by individuals from EVD-affected countries and individuals with a travel history to EVD-affected countries within the previous 3 weeks.

The first part is intended for organizers of international meetings, to safely plan and conduct these events. The second part is addressed to public health authorities directly involved in supporting such international meetings.
