Abstract: With the understanding that health action must primarily occur at the country level, WHO initiatives in communicable diseases control, elimination and eradication are in support of, and guided by, national priorities and needs. These include technical support for formulation of national policy and strategy as well as in programme planning, implementation and monitoring/evaluation. WHO initiatives at the regional level focus on normative functions such as development of guidelines, best practice approaches, and training materials; providing a forum for information exchange and sharing of country experiences; advocacy; and mobilizing rapid response to disease outbreaks and health emergencies when needs.
