The Joint External Evaluation (JEE) is a voluntary collaborative process to assess a country’s capacity under the International Health Regulations (2005) to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to public health threats whether occurring naturally or not. In using the JEE to develop its plan of action, the country is able to highlight gaps and needs for both current and prospective donors and partners in an effort to fill gaps with resources.
Under the International Health Regulations (IHR) 2005 all States Parties are required to have or develop and maintain minimum core public health capacities to implement the IHR (2005), as stipulated in Article 54 of the Regulations. Data from 2015 show that States Parties are making good progress on a number of core capacities, notably in the areas of surveillance, zoonotic diseases, response, coordination, laboratory, legislation policy, and risk communication, and can be found in the Global Health Observatory

Joint External Evaluation (JEE)
The Joint External Evaluation (JEE) is part of the IHR Monitoring and Evaluation Framework and is a voluntary, multisectoral process to assess country capacity to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to public health risks.
The JEE allows countries to identify the most urgent needs within their health security system; to prioritize opportunities for enhanced preparedness, detection and response capacity, including setting national priorities; and to allocate resources based on the findings.
