Country strengths are preparedness areas that are established and able to be activated when health threats arise. These areas include an emergency operations center or a robust laboratory that can quickly diagnose infectious diseases. Each country should undergo an assessment to make sure they have preparedness areas in place. PreventEpidemics.org shows which countries have done an assessment and assigns a score from 0 to 100 based on how well they performed in 19 preparedness areas. We highlight areas that the country scored highest on during its most recent evaluation.
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.
