Step 2: Capture 7-1-7 data for public health events

The 7-1-7 approach is based on the idea that every public health event presents an opportunity to learn from real-world experience and improve. By evaluating the performance of systems required to detect, notify, and respond, each public health event can be used to identify performance bottlenecks and remedial actions to improve preparedness for future threats. This section describes how the 7-1-7 approach can be applied to identify bottlenecks and enablers to detection, notification and early response, as well as the actions necessary to improve future performance.

Global health security is only as strong as the weakest link.
