Abstract Pakistan failed its International Health Regulations (2005) assessment and invited PHE to support it in developing a method to implement a comprehensive new national disease surveillance system to address systemic weaknesses in their healthcare system.This poster will map and outline the 3-year journey that PHE's Global Public Health Team has undertaken to set up a functioning data-driven Integrated Disease Surveillance System using DHIS2 web-based surveillance tool in Pakistan – which is still in its infancy. Lessons are important as more countries invite international teams to support their Global Health Security Agenda and PHE is acknowledged with leading expertise in this.It will have a timeline and document challenges with solutions and lessons from the conception of the project and identifying key areas of work, key stakeholders and financial constraints in the local context. Then explore the issues around building consensus in how to approach the new systems and then the necessary collaborative working to initiate a roadmap for the project. There will be a section on the merits of choosing the DHIS2 system for data management.A discussion around the key learning points in implementing the data flow from basic health facilities, through to districts, provinces and federal levels and the necessary response to the basic surveillance information is explored, in a resource-poor environment. Recommendations will centre on learning for PHE, Pakistan and other generic lessons for other countries. External funding details Initial phase of work was funded by Department for International Development, UK Government.
