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.
