A mission for the assessment of IHR core capacities took place in Jordan from 22 to 26 January 2012. The main objectives of the meeting were to:
identify the core capacities required to support IHR implementation at the local/community level and/or primary public health response, and at the intermediate and national levels;
provide guidance on the use of assessment tools;
identify ways to integrate the IHR requirements into existing public health laws in Jordan;
agree on IHR core capacity requirements for points of entry in the country.
