WHO CC Infectious Disease Preparedness and IHR M&E support WHO and its Members States by providing technical advice at request through workshops, trainings, and exercises.

The WHO CC team has contributed to and supported WHO and its Member States in numerous workshops, training, and exercises related to IHR and infectious diseases preparedness on the national and international level. This includes, but is not limited to the yearly CAPSCA meetings regarding all hazard preparedness at airports, the 2017 IHR meeting of the European Region in St. Petersburg, and the yearly IHR meeting of the Dutch Caribbean regarding the implementation of IHR capacities in small island settings.

In fact, the WHO CC team has extensive experience in developing and facilitating workshops, as well as developing and conducting various training and exercises. Thus has a professional staff of the National Coordination Centre for Communicable Disease Control themselves, for instance, participated in Training of the Trainer (ToT) courses, such as in the Global ToT on IHR (2005) M&E in Jordan, 2017.

At the request of WHO, the National Coordination Centre for Communicable Disease Control provides technical advise by the participation of relevant professional staff regarding all-hazard preparedness and IHR M&E, amongst other in expert meetings and training, facilitating working groups, and conducting table-top exercises.
