Press invitation for WHO Joint External Evaluation on March 3, 2017

An IHR (International Health Regulations) Joint External Evaluation mission has been ongoing in Kenya from February 27 to March 3, 2017.

The Joint External Evaluation process is intended for countries to:

to assess the country capacity to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to public health threats

to measure country specific status and progress in achieving the targets

to identify progress made and ensure any improvements in capacity are sustained

allow countries to identify the most urgent needs within their health security system,

to prioritize opportunities for enhanced preparedness, response and action, and

to engage with current and prospective donors and partners to target resources effectively.

We would like to invite you to the closing ceremony which will give an overview and summary of the findings from the mission.
