CAPSCA is an ICAO global programme to improve preparedness/contingency planning and emergency response to public health events that affect the aviation sector, such as an influenza pandemic or a nuclear power-plant accident.
ICAO has worked closely with States, the World Health Organization, the International Air Transport Association, Airports Council International and other partners, to develop relevant provisions in a number of ICAO Annexes, i.e.: Annex 6 — Operation of Aircraft; Annex 9 — Facilitation; Annex 11 — Air Traffic Services; Annex 14 — Aerodromes; as well as Procedures for Air Navigation Services (PANS) — Air Traffic Management; and the Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air.
Conducting a technical assistance visit to CAPSCA Member States and Airports is an online course developed by JAA TO and CAPSCA under supervision, and endorsed, by the ICAO TrainairPlus Programme.
The course aims to contribute to the ICAO Collaborative Arrangement for the Prevention and Management of Public Health Events in Civil Aviation (CAPSCA) programme by developing a critical mass of experts for the global implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) related to public health events and emergencies, and the WHO International Health Regulations (IHR 2005).
This online training will enable experts to become CAPSCA Technical Advisors by developing a standardised awareness and understanding of the methodology, aspects and requirements to assess and improve existing prevention infrastructure, and to propose measures to eliminate deficiencies in preparedness to Public Health emergencies.
