The recovery toolkit is a library of guidance resources in a single place which can be quickly and easily accessed, to guide action. A key purpose of the Recovery Toolkit is to support countries in the reactivation of health services which may have suffered as a result of the emergency. These services include ongoing programmes such as immunization and vaccinations, maternal and child health services, and noncommunicable diseases. But in addition, and because the Toolkit contains core information needed to achieve functioning national health systems, it also supports countries to implement their national health plans during the recovery phase of a public health emergency.
