The Country Cooperation Strategy (CCS) highlights important areas in which WHO collaborates with a given country over of 4–5 year period. These areas or “strategic directions” are the priority areas that the government and WHO have agreed to focus on. The CCS document describes the approaches that WHO uses in providing technical support to the government under each agreed priority area. The CCS aims to harmonize WHO collaboration in country with the aims of national health policies, strategies and plans, as well as with the work of other United Nations (UN) agencies, major donors and key partners in the country.
The CCS document is prepared through a set process in which the WHO Representative in the country plays a lead role by facilitating the establishment of a CCS country team, composed of key Ministry of Health officials and WHO country office staff. The CCS team will review the status of health and health services in the country by meeting and discussing with all health departments inside the Ministry of Health and with other health-related ministries and agencies. The CCS country team prepares a draft situation report which includes a review of the health sector, status of external aid to the health sector, the coordination of aid and then conducts a rapid appraisal of WHO collaboration in the previous 4–6 years.
The CCS is an important document that guides WHO operational planning and activities in a country and sets priorities at the regional and global level.
