Project Summary

Australia will convene a workshop to bring together relevant stakeholders from APEC-member economies to discuss opportunities for collaboration to advance the objectives of the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) to accelerate compliance with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Health Regulations (IHRs).

The Workshop will be informed by the outcomes of peer reviews that will be conducted by Australia and another APEC economy on their respective experiences in implementing the IHRs.  The peer reviews will be conducted towards the end of 2015.

The workshop will also build on recent international forums aimed at generating momentum for the implementation of the GHSA, including the May 2015 World Health Assembly side event on GHSA – from the Ebola epidemic to measurable IHR implementation (Geneva); and in the Asia-Pacific, the August 2014 Global Meeting on Infectious Diseases Building global commitment to manage emerging zoonotic diseases in support of the GHSA (Indonesia); and the May 2015 GHSA Meeting Step towards regional strategic collaboration in Asia-Pacific on workforce development, laboratory system strengthening and antimicrobial resistance prevention (Thailand).

Workshop discussions will aim to identify gaps and risks related to health security in the region and consider specific, coordinated actions in support of GHSA Action Packages.  The outputs of these discussions will provide impetus for APEC economies to establish a baseline of health security prevention and response capacity and identify areas in which economies may be able to establish mutually beneficial partnerships or collaborative arrangements to further implementation.

A skilled facilitator will conduct the workshop and prepare a report of the outcomes.  The workshop will be held in one of the participating economies in early 2016.
