Overview

 

In 2015, Member States, partners and donors mandated WHO to establish a Strategic Partnership Portal (SPP) to monitor the health security capacity of countries by helping them identify needs, gaps and priorities in national, provincial and local health security; by mapping and sharing information on global health security investment and resources; and by creating a platform for collaborating on global health security. In 2018, the SPP expanded from a one-stop information platform to a mechanism for collaboration and partnership and became the Strategic Partnership for Health Security (SPH).

The goal of SPH is to ensure that Member States, partners and donors are aligned and apply coherent “One Health” approaches in supporting countries to build and strengthen country their capacities to detect, prevent and respond to public health emergencies. These capacities are enshrined in the IHR (2005) and require well-functioning national health systems.

The International Health Regulations (2005) requires all States Parties to detect, assess, report, and respond to potential public health emergencies of international concern (PHEIC) at all levels of government, and to report such events rapidly to the WHO to determine whether a coordinated, global response is required. To develop baseline capacities of Member States, the WHA resolution “WHA 65.21” identified WHO’s critical convening role to facilitate strategic cooperation and partnership between and within States Parties along with regional and internationals partners, donors and networks. The SPH is designed specifically to foster these relationships.

The Strategic Partnership Networks enables countries, partners and donors to efficiently and rapidly match needs and gaps with resources and priorities to effectively improve health security. It uses data obtained from donors and partners directly, from WHO regional and country offices, from the countries themselves, from the various IHR assessments conducted, and from public websites. A partner matching application helps Member States and donors establish matches.

What we do

SPH supports the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) through goals 3 (Health for all), 11 and 17. SPH helps to achieve universal health coverage : we support countries to build and sustain strong frameworks for multi-sectoral collaboration and partnerships, which reinforce health security governance and strengthen health systems. Under the IHR (2005), WHO has a role to convene key stakeholders. SPH’s role fosters strategic cooperation and partnership between and within States Parties, regional and internationals partners, donors and networks. Through an application on the SPH website, countries, partners and donors can match needs and gaps with resources and priorities to improve health security. SPH charts the results of IHR (2005) assessments and external data to provide an overall picture of each country as it relates to health security. SPH maps the health security areas that donors are interested in funding and the countries they are supporting, and links to their website. The WHO Strategic Partnership for Health Security (SPH) is a coordination mechanism for countries, donors and partners to share, inform, and collaborate in order to strengthen International Health Regulations – IHR (2005) capacity and increase global health security. The Strategic Partnership Leadership is a multi-stakeholder advisory group which provides leadership, guidance and oversight for SPH. The Strategic Partnership Networks enable countries, partners and donors to match needs and gaps with technical resources and priorities to improve health security. The Strategic Partnership Resources offers countries, donors and partners a wide array of country data and donor profiles, expert profiles, guidelines, tools, resource mapping, and other useful links. The Strategic Partnership Forum is a high-level forum bringing together countries, multi-sectoral partners and donors to align investment priorities for the current and future IHR and health security needs and gaps.
