David Gootnick (au); Janet Heinrich (au). Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) emerged in South China in Nov. 2002 & spread rapidly along international air routes in early 2003. Asian countries had the most cases (7,782) & deaths (729). SARS challenged Asian health care systems, disrupted Asian economies, & tested the effectiveness of the International Health Regulations. This report examines the roles of the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. government, & Asian governments (China, Hong Kong, & Taiwan) in responding to SARS; the estimated economic impact of SARS in Asia; & efforts to update the International Health Regulations. Recommendations are included in this report. Tables & graphs.
