ReadyScore®

The ReadyScore is a measurement of a country's ability to find, stop and prevent health threats. A score of 80% or higher indicates that a country is ready for an epidemic. Learn More

Data source: WHO JEE reports

Armenia is better prepared for the next epidemic. They have functioning systems to find, stop and prevent health threats, but they must work to maintain this level of protection for their people.

Armenia has achieved a ReadyScore of 80 or higher and is working to improve and sustain their preparedness.

Better Prepared

The Key 7 ReadyScore factors are the 7 technical areas that the Resolve to Save Lives team focuses on, selected from the 19 areas assessed by the JEE. These 7 areas are the foundational technical areas for epidemic preparedness that contribute to health system strengthening. The remaining 12 areas build off of the strong systems that the Key 7 form.

Simulation Exercise

A Simulation Exercise is an activity where essential groups required for emergency response — government, health facilities and partners — simulate an emergency and its full response. This allows for an assessment of gaps in preparedness and response.
