SHARP Joint Action (2019 – March 2023) is co-funded by the Health Programme of the European Union (80%) and by partners’ own contributions (20%). By working together, the partners and the European Commission will ensure a safer environment for all EU citizens. The SHARP Joint Action will work to strengthen member’s existing capacities as well as supporting improvement in those countries where IHR capability gaps exist.
