The "2016 Country Cooperation Strategy Guide" is a corporate tool developed for WHO staff and national counterparts involved in the development of CCS to define WHO’s technical coordination role in and with Member States. The Guide is designed to produce analytical and strategic documents through analysis of the country priorities and WHO's added value. It focuses on ways to enable the CCS to fully address the health-related targets in the SDGs within the framework of the country’s National Health Policies, Strategies and Plans and UNDAF’s outcomes and outputs. It highlights the need to identify a coherent set of priorities in line with the 2030 Agenda, linking with other planning tools and instruments, specifically the results chain of the GPW and provides a more robust framework for monitoring and evaluation of the CCS.
