COVID-19 Strategic preparedness and response plan. Operational planning guidelines to support country preparedness and response

Source(s):  World Health Organization (WHO)

The SPRP outlines the public health measures that need to be taken to support countries to prepare for and respond to COVID-19. It can be used to rapidly adapt National ActionPlans for Health Security (NAPHS) and Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Plans (PIPP) to COVID-19, taking what we have learned so far about the virus and translating that knowledge into strategic action that can guide the efforts of all nationaland international partners to support national governments.

Based on an initial assessment of country risk and vulnerability, the SPRP estimates the resource requirements to support countries to prepare for and respond to COVID-19. In many cases, national governments will be well placed to implement these measures with minimal support. In other cases, partners may be best placed to implement measures where there is a gap in capacity, either on a national or subnational level, in support of national governments.
A detailed gap and needs analysis will need to be conductedin each affected country to develop a COVID‐19 CountryPreparedness and Response Plan (CPRP) and resource requirements in support of national governments. These CPRPs will need to be monitored using indicators based on those set out in the SPRP, and adapted as the situation evolves.
