SHARP Joint Action aims to strengthen preparedness in the EU against serious cross-border threats to health, and support the implementation of
International Health Regulations (2005).

About SHARP Joint Action

The SHARP Joint Action works to strengthen member’s existing capacities as well as supporting improvements in those countries where IHR capability gaps exist. By working together, the partners and the European Commission will ensure a safer environment for all EU citizens.

SHARP Joint Action (2019 – March 2023) is co-funded by the Health Programme of the European Union (80%) and by partners’ own contributions (20%).

SHARP is managed by DG SANTE and the EU Health and Digital Executive Agency – HaDEA (the latter replaced CHAFEA from April 2021).
