Arizona Review of Reported Binational Cases with Mexico

Reporting of binational cases has been enacted in Arizona systematically since 2007. Investigating binational cases and providing binational counterparts with timely information can help to enact interventions, as well as strengthens communication between binational, federal, and local health partners. This has allowed a better understanding of the burden of disease among binational/border populations. The process of systematically sharing these cases has allowed for appropriate and timely public health interventions to be implemented, crossing an international boundary in both states.
