CDC’s “Public Health Matters Blog”: Global Health Security: How is the U.S. doing?
This blog post describes the work of the Joint External Evaluation Team, a team of international experts from several different countries tasked with assessing countries’ capacity under the International Health Regulations (IHR) to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to natural, accidental, or deliberate public health threats. The blog post notes, “The U.S. requested this unbiased review of its response capabilities and hopes that the entire world will do the same. Like other countries who have undergone this process, the U.S. will soon share the final report of the Joint External Evaluation with the public” (7/5).
