Capacity-mapping package

In February 2017, the WHO Regional Office for Europe launched a capacity-building package on ERC in five steps to support country development or strengthening of ERC under IHR. The five-step package is a unique, sustained, country-tailored capacity-building project in ERC. It comprises:

  1. Training
  2. Capacity-mapping
  3. Plan writing
  4. Plan testing
  5. Plan adoption

The aim of ERC capacity-mapping – step two of the ERC five-step package – is to support countries in identifying their ERC strengths and weaknesses before WHO collaborative capacity-building. This activity is often conducted in conjunction with training and/or writing an ERC plan.
