To help countries meet their IHR commitments for developing national risk assessment capacity, WHO provides risk assessment support in the form of technical guidance and operational support on the ground.

WHO’s support is tailored to the specific context of each country, and enables countries to manage and reduce the impact of acute public health risks.
