Review / Summary:
As the COVID-19 pandemic enters its fourth year, surveillance has declined dramatically. While weekly reported cases and deaths are at the lowest level since the pandemic began, millions continue to be infected or re-infected with SARS-CoV-2 and thousands of people are dying each week. At this pivotal moment, WHO has updated its Strategic Preparedness and Response plan for 2023-2025. The updated two-year strategy builds on the objectives of the 2022 SPRP and supports countries as they are working to transition their critical emergency response activities to longer-term sustained COVID-19 disease prevention, control and management.
