Abstract


We developed an interactive and comprehensive toolset useful to WHO member states to assess progress toward implementation of the surveillance core capacity under the IHR (2005). The tool will provide data to track progress in achieving effective and efficient public health surveillance. Further, the tool will enable decision makers to allocate resources so as to prioritize needs and assess ROI.
