The Weekly Epidemiological Monitor is a Regional Office publication produced by the pandemic and epidemic-prone disease programme.

The publication aims to share information and forge sustainable technical collaboration between Member States and technical programmes within the Regional Office. It is widely distributed to leaders in public health to strengthen partnerships and promote better health.

The goal of this communication is to provide credible, timely and concise information about public health events that might constitute public health emergencies of regional and or international concern. The Weekly Epidemiological Monitor not only documents major public health events and lessons learnt in the Region through sharing information, but also promotes transparency and the preparedness of Member States for public health events of international concern.
