This report summarizes the progress of APSED (2010) implementation in the Western Pacific Region by documenting key achievements, activities and challenges for each of the eight focus area for the period January 2011 to June 2012. In summary, while steady progress was made during this period, maintaining commitment, securing the required resources, implementing national plans, building on achievements and following the established road map envisioned under APSED (2010) are critical to meet and maintain IHR (2005) core capacities in the Western Pacific Region.
