2. Supporting our partner countries to make sure that their national health systems are resilient, responsive, accountable and on-track to meet the standards set out in the International Health Regulations.

3. Ensuring that governments and regional health institutions are held to account for the prevention of health emergencies, delivery of quality health services and proper management of health budgets.
