In the wake of Ebola outbreak, one of the priority areas of activity is ensuring that countries have the capacity to detect and respond to the appearance of major public health threat.
WHO has encouraged the use of simulation exercises as an evidence-based process to assess and test national capacities and system functionalities needed to respond to a suspected outbreak.
A simulation exercise is a simulated emergency situation during which members of various bodies perform the expected actions according to their assigned function during an emergency.
