Diseases and special health issues under EU surveillance

ECDC collects, analyses and disseminates surveillance data on communicable diseases and related special health issues from all European Union Member States and two of the three remaining European Economic Area (EEA) countries (Iceland and Norway).

The reference list of diseases is based on the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2018/945 of 22 June 2018 on the communicable diseases and related special health issues to be covered by epidemiological surveillance as well as relevant case definitions.
