Joint External Evaluation of IHR Core Capacities of the Republic of Liberia - 2023

Liberia was the first country in West Africa to undergo the JEE assessment in 2016 using the first edition of the JEE tool. An international multisectoral team of experts and observers participated in a weeklong assessment to jointly assess Liberia’s strengths and weaknesses and develop priority actions for each of the 19 technical areas. As Liberia was in the immediate post-Ebola period of the 2014/2015 Ebola outbreak, this assessment was critical for determining critical areas of preparedness and response to prevent future outbreaks and build resilience in the public health system.

In September 2023, Liberia underwent a second JEE assessment using the third edition of the tool. The weeklong assessment was led by WHO’s Regional Office for Africa and the host country. The host country participated in a facilitated discussion with an international evaluation team of fifteen (15) multisectoral experts to jointly assess Liberia’s strengths, weaknesses, and priority actions in health security preparedness and response.
