ECDC and WHO Europe jointly release “MESSAGE - MEaSles and rubella Self Assessment GEnerating tool” for public health experts, to facilitate assessment of the progress made towards measles and rubella elimination.
Together with vaccination, performance assessment is a crucial public health action in order to tackle measles and rubella elimination in Europe.
MESSAGE is a self-administered web-based questionnaire targeted to public health experts implementing preventive and control actions. By analysing the main elements of a public health program, such as resource supply, surveillance, control measures, and communication, it helps to understand how the program could be improved in order to achieve its specific goals. The automatically generated report can be used as a basis for further systematic and more detailed country specific assessment and action.
