The evidence behind the target for containing epidemic threats
Resource Category: Quick Facts
The simplicity of 7-1-7’s three timeliness metrics means we can regularly monitor performance, evaluate interventions and document progress with full transparency.
By incorporating 7-1-7 into existing workflows, we can make every outbreak an opportunity to improve how we detect and respond to infectious disease threats.
Armed with clear data based on simple metrics, you can help any decision-maker understand the need for support, funding or policy change for better epidemic preparedness.
Founded in February 2023, The 7-1-7 Alliance is a country-led initiative that provides technical assistance, financial support and a growing, global community of practice to help all countries achieve the 7-1-7 target for outbreak detection and control, as well as meet their obligations under the International Health Regulations (2005).
