2016 Review of the PIP Framework

The PIP Advisory Group met in a Special Session on 13-14 October 2015 to seek views from Member States, industry and other stakeholders on the 2016 PIP Framework Review. The Advisory Group recommended that a small independent group of experts be established to review implementation of the PIP Framework using a transparent and inclusive approach. The Review was tasked with answering the following questions:

  • What are the achievements since the PIP Framework was adopted?
  • Has implementation of the PIP Framework improved global pandemic influenza preparedness, including interpandemic surveillance, and capacity to respond?
  • What are the challenges, and possible ways of addressing them?

Beginning its work in January 2016, the Review Group held six meetings (four in-person), hosted two full-day consultations with Member States and stakeholders, conducted 40 interviews with key informants, and considered a number of written submissions. The Review Group provided its final report to the Director-General in October 2016 for consideration by the 140th Executive Board and the Seventieth World Health Assembly
