NAPHS: Key components

The NAPHS Framework is intended as a flexible, 3-step approach to help countries organize, develop and implement a planor planning processthat addresses critical aspects of health security.

Step 1 - Inception: Consists of a desktop review of all existing national plans and capacity assessments, stakeholder analysis, SWOT analysis and prioritization of technical areas of action.

Step 2 - Development: Consists of identification and prioritization of activities within the technical areas based on risk assessment, monitoring and evaluation framework, detailed costing of activities, mapping resources and endorsement of the plan.

Step 3 - Implementation: Consists of reprioritization of the plan for operations based on resource mapping; integration into national health sector planning; monitoring, evaluation and reporting; and updating of the plan periodically. This step leads into implementation of the plan and continued mobilization of additional resources for the implementation as well as monitoring and evaluation and reporting.
