There is an urgent need for coordinated action to build stronger health systems and mobilize additional resources for health emergency preparedness, response and resilience (HEPR). This course will help countries to develop national health emergency investment plans, based on analyses of capacities, risks and vulnerabilities, to mobilize and access new sources of funding and technical support for strengthening HEPR, including from the new Pandemic Fund.
The Pandemic Fund will provide a dedicated stream of additional, long-term financing to strengthen critical HEPR capabilities in low-income and middle-income countries through investments and technical support at the national, regional, and global levels.

WHO held a series of webinars in March 2023 to outline the tools countries can use and the approaches they can take to develop Pandemic Fund proposals as part of broader national plans for health emergency preparedness, prevention, and response.
This online course was created as a result of that webinar series to further support Eligible Countries, Regional Entities and Implementing Entities to develop full proposals for potential projects to be supported in this Pandemic Fund funding opportunity window, which is open until 19 May 2023.
This is a site for webinar recordings and no certificates are available. We are releasing new content daily during 5 days.
Certificates: A Certificate of Achievement will be available to participants who score at least 80% of the total points available in all graded assessments. Participants who receive a Certificate of Achievement can also download an Open Badge for this course. Click here to learn how.
