About the theme

WHO/Europe helps countries in the WHO European Region to prepare for and respond to health emergencies by offering technical guidance, support and coordinating in the field. WHO/Europe also implements the International Health Regulations (IHR) which provides a unique global framework for health security, involving 196 countries worldwide and including all WHO Member States. Under the IHR, countries commit to reporting public health emergencies of international concern and in strengthening their national surveillance, preparedness, and response systems.
