The JEE Alliance facilitates engagement between all relevant actors involved in the WHO’s assessment process that uses the Joint External Evaluation (JEE) tool, and links it with other assessment processes for health security. It promotes transparency in exchanging information on the results of assessments, in particular for donors interested in funding the development and strengthening of national level capacities and capabilities.

A multi-stakeholder Advisory Group supports the JEE Alliance. The Advisory Group has 20 representatives of constituencies drawn from the Members of the Alliance: 12 countries, two from each region; four non-governmental organizations and foundations; and four multilateral organizations as permanent members (FAO, OIE, WHO, World Bank). Finland and Australia currently serve as co-chairs.

Work plan
The rolling JEE Alliance workplan describes priorities and working arrangements for the Alliance from November 2018, coinciding with the point of transition between the GHSA’s first and second five-year phases.

The work plan is a living document. It is specific about priorities for approximately twelve months ahead but will be reviewed and updated biannually, or as necessary.

The JEE Alliance meets 2-3 times a year. The meetings are open to all actors interested in health security capacity building.
The Advisory Group meets 3-4 times a year. The face-to-face meetings of the Advisory Group are open to all Alliance members and other interested actors
