Joint External Evaluation of International Health Regulations Core Capacities of the Kingdom of Bhutan. 2017

During the WHO’s Joint External Evaluation mission, Bhutan’s capacities in 19 technical areas were evaluated through a peer-to-peer, collaborative process that brought Bhutanese subject matter experts together with members of the JEE team in a week of collaborative discussion and field visits. This process led to consensus on scores and priority actions in 19 technical areas. The assessors concluded that Bhutan’s commitment to building and/ or maintaining capacities to detect, assess, notify and respond to major public health events is genuine and strong, and enjoys high-level political commitment and support.
