Emergency risk communication (ERC) 5-step capacity-building package

Source(s):  World Health Organization - Regional Office for Europe (WHO - Europe)

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 five steps engage European countries in an iterative process to develop, test and adopt national health ERC plans and to integrate them into new or existing national action plans for emergency preparedness and response under the IHR. The comprehensive package includes tools for multisectoral training, capacity mapping and development, testing and adoption of an ERC plan.
