Our experience shows that the transmission of smallpox from India to Nepal has been occurring and on investigation, we have been able to trace the sources of infection to India in a few outbreaks. We do not have any information regarding transmission in the other direction. To tackle this problem of transmission of the disease across the border, close cooperation and coordination among the concerned officials are required. Priority has to be given to vaccination coverage of the border areas to achieve the maximum possible level of immunity. There should be a mechanism for immediate reporting of outbreaks to a counterpart in the other country so that necessary measures could be taken on both sides of the border. All the relevant information about the outbreak such as the source of infection, chain of transmission, contact, etc. should be exchanged and necessary help and cooperation should be provided, without any delay.
