In order to plan and monitor PPHSN development, the following meetings are organised by the section (in some cases in cooperation with partners):

(a) PPHSN Coordinating Body meetings: Typically held once a year with all Coordinating Body members.

(b) PPHSN regional or sub-regional meetings: Held approximately every two years for EpiNet team (or equivalent) members (usually the focal points) and/or other decision makers from ministries and departments of health active in the area of communicable disease surveillance and response.
