Management and Facilitation of a Country COVID-19 Intra-Action Review (IAR)


As the COVID-19 pandemic becomes increasingly protracted, WHO has developed a Guidance for Conducting a Country COVID-19 Intra-Action Review (IAR) and ten accompanying tools for countries to conduct periodic reviews of their response during this public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC). A Country COVID-19 IAR is a country-led facilitated process that allows stakeholders of the ongoing COVID-19 response to review the functional capacities of public health and emergency response systems at the national or subnational levels to identify best practices, gaps and lessons learned, and propose corrective measures and actions for immediate remediation or sustained improvement of the COVID-19 outbreak response. The course consists of four modules, quizzes after each module and a final assessment.
