Abstract BackgroundPublic Health England (PHE) have commissioned Contech International a local Pakistan public health organisation to undertake a Political and Institutional Economy Analysis (PIEA) to inform our technical work supporting WHO International Health Regulation compliance and integrated disease surveillance and response (IDSR) in Pakistan. Political Economy Analysis (PEA) is a powerful tool for improving the effectiveness of aid. It deals with 'the incentives that shape the way the relevant actors interact with each other. This involves appreciating power structures, the formal and informal rules that govern behaviour, and the room for manoeuvre within complex processes of change'. [1]MethodsThe PIEA will be undertaken by a multidisciplinary team with expertise across a range of disciplines to include social sciences, development, health systems, epidemiology, and health policy.The team are looking to understand amongst other issues:the forces leading to failure or slow progress on existing international commitmentsthe rules systems: formal institutions (laws, regulations, legal codes); informal institutions (norms, culture, patriarchy) ; foundational factorsthe political will and commitment to IHR and IDSR - through review of recent manifesto and budget commitmentsThis will be complimented by a comprehensive stakeholder analysis. ResultsThe results (available June 2016) will play a key part in informing situational analyses of IHR and IDSR at national level and of IDSR in Punjab province, and subsequent strategic and operational planning for change.
