In 2018 WHO provided a new State Parties Self-Assessment Annual Reporting Tool - SPAR, with a revised interpretation of national IHR 13 capacities on a scale scoring system. of 13 capacities. Data from 2018 show that globally, progress has been reported across all 13 IHR core capacities, particularly in respect of surveillance, laboratory capacity and IHR coordination and National IHR National Focal Point functions, but the overall average scores suggest further and sustained efforts are needed in the areas of chemical events, capacities at points of entry and radiation emergencies.
