[Méthodologie d'évaluation des capacités des systèmes de santé pour la gestion des crises: Renforcement de la préparation des systèmes de santé aux situations d'urgence. Première partie. Mode d'emploi]
In preparing for health crises, health systems face the prospect of multiple hazards, limited resources for dealing with them and high expectations with regard to their performance. The WHO Regional Office for Europe is working with its Member States towards strengthening health-system capacity by providing technical assistance in developing and implementing crisis preparedness and management programmes. In 2008, with the aim of improving the preparedness of countries for public health emergencies, the European Commission Directorate-General for Health and Consumers and the WHO Regional Office embarked on a joint project entitled, “Support to health security, perparedness planning and crises management in European Union (EU), EU accession and neighbouring (ENP) countries”. The objectives of this project included the development of a standardized toolkit for assessing health-system capacity for managing crises.
This toolkit was developed and revised during the course of pilot assessments carried out in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, the Republic of Moldova, Turkey and Ukraine between 2007 and 2010. It comprises two parts: (1) the present document (user manual) and (2) the assessment form.
