The management of risks due to biological hazards is a national and community priority. Epidemics of infectious diseases have shown the capacity to disrupt many dimensions of human existence. Moreover, they can affect anywhere in the world and severely test the global community's resilience. The INFORM Epidemic Risk Index is a prototype version of hazard dependent INFORM Risk Index (global risk assessment for humanitarian crises and disasters). It is a tool for assessing the countries' risk for all the type of epidemics. The risk levels are set as follows: LOW = risk score 3.5 and below; MEDIUM = risk score between 3.5 an 5; HIGH = risk score between 5 and 6.5; VERY HIGH = risk score 6.5 and above.
