The emergence of major disease outbreaks over the last few decades has increased support to build national and global capacities to meet the requirements of the International Health Regulations (IHR-2005) and to advance the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA). Through its NOHP assessment, and other global processes, P&R works to answer questions about country core capacities to meet the requirements of the International Health Regulations (IHR-2005) and to implement multisectoral One Health actions.
