Step 4: Synthesize 7-1-7 performance to prioritize long-term planning and accountability
By evaluating the real-world performance of detection, notification, and early response systems, implementation of the 7-1-7 approach generates information that can be used to inform financing and planning decisions. The approach does not replace, but rather complements, existing components of the IHR Monitoring and Evaluation Framework—such as the State Parties Self-Assessment Annual Reporting (SPAR) and Joint External Evaluation (JEE) tools, both of which assess the existence of country system capacities as opposed to real-world performance. This section outlines how 7-1-7 data can be consolidated across multiple events and used to support prioritization of financing and planning activities by stakeholders.
