The ReadyScore uses existing data from the Joint External Evaluation (JEE), a rigorous and transparent assessment developed by the World Health Organization after the 2014 Ebola epidemic to help countries find and close preparedness gaps. The ReadyScore consolidates key information from the JEE into an easy-to-understand number, identifies what countries are doing well to prepare for the next health threat, and what they need to improve.
The Joint External Evaluation is a rigorous and transparent assessment of a country’s ability to find, stop and prevent disease threats.
A country’s epidemic preparedness ReadyScore is calculated on a scale of 0–100. A score higher than 80 indicates a country is better prepared to respond to an epidemic.
The country ReadyScore is calculated using information from 19 preparedness areas analyzed during a Joint External Evaluation.
Areas where the country has shown a high level of epidemic preparedness.
Areas that the country can improve to be better prepared to find, stop and prevent epidemics.
The International Health Regulations Annual Report is a mandatory annual assessment of epidemic preparedness.
