Joint External Evaluation Tool: International Health Regulations as part of the IHR (2005) Monitoring and Evaluation framework

Author:World Health Organization
Description:This evaluation tool allows countries to identify the most urgent needs within their health security system, to prioritize opportunities for increased preparedness, and to target resources more effectively. It is intended to assess country capacity to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to public health threats. The first time the evaluation is completed, it will serve as a baseline measurement of the country's capacity and cabalbilities. Subsequent evaluations should occur every five years and will identify progress made and ensure any improvements in capacity are sustained. The joint external evaluation approach should include voluntary country participation, a multisectoral approach by both the external teams and host countries, and transparecy and openness of data and information sharing.
