The PIP Framework is supporting capacity-building through laboratory diagnosis and biosafety-biosecurity training, quality control assessment, and technical monitoring and evaluation. Of 23 laboratories assessed so far, 11 have become part of the EID network, and nine more are expected to.
Pandemic Influenza Preparedness (PIP) Framework
The PIP Framework brings together Member States, industry, other stakeholders and WHO to implement a global approach to pandemic influenza preparedness and response.

The Framework was developed by Member States. It became effective on 24 May 2011 when it was unanimously adopted by the Sixty-fourth World Health Assembly.
