The 2021 Global Needs Overview highlights the 56 countries and 237 million people in need of health and wider humanitarian assistance in these settings. For example, six countries (DRC, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen), account for 60 million of those people in need.
To ensure timely, predictable and effective leadership for health emergencies, the WHO Emergencies Program established a Country Business Model (CBM) to provide the sustained organizational capacity required to implement the core health emergency functions. The CBM determines the mandatory staffing model at country level to scale up capacity for health emergencies, through pre-defined core functions required for countries to better implement.

Gap filling for key CBM positions in priority countries to support core emergency teams
Activity 1:1: Collect data on emergency capacities in the priority countries
Activity 1.2: Analyse data and produce baseline reports of core country capacities and gaps per priority countries
Produce comprehensive functional models of core capacities considering the costings and partner complementarity in priority countries
Activity 2.1: Design and implement an assessment tool of the CBM to incorporate the country finding, lessons learned and best practices from the priority country focal points
Activity 2.2: Present various functional models with recommendations both short term and long term based on the country context and the findings
Activity 2.3: Prepare a report on monitoring the country capacity building with live updates based on evolving country situations
