International Health Regulations (2005) Monitoring Framework

Under the International Health Regulations (2005) (IHR (2005) all States Parties are required to have or to develop minimum core public health capacities to implement the IHR (2005) (IHR) effectively. The IHR monitoring process, involves assessing, through a self-assessment questionnaire sent to State Parties, the implementation status of 13 core capacities. Data from 2013 show that State Parties are making good progress on a number of core capacities, notably in the areas of zoonotic diseases, surveillance, response, laboratories, coordination, risk communication, and food safety.
