Country mission Latvia: HIV, STI and hepatitis B and C
This report describes a country mission undertaken by ECDC in 2011 to Latvia, to address issues relating to HIV, STI and hepatitis B and C identified by the Latvian government.
Monitoring the responses to hepatitis B and C epidemics in the EU/EEA Member States, 2019
19 May 2020 - This report provides the first collation of data relating to the monitoring of the progress towards the elimination of hepatitis B and C for EU/EEA countries. This collated information represents an important step towards understanding the priority areas for action and gaps in the national responses to the hepatitis B and C epidemics. The data also provide an important baseline to help map progress towards the WHO elimination targets and ultimately achieve the 2030 sustainable development goals.
HIV Combination prevention: Monitoring implementation of the Dublin Declaration on partnership to fight HIV/AIDS in Europe and Central Asia (2018 progress report)
15 May 2020 - HIV combination prevention is an approach that brings together single prevention initiatives into a comprehensive programme. This approach considers that the offer of multiple evidence-based interventions in a comprehensive programme will have a greater impact on HIV transmission than investing in a single strategy. In this report we present and test the feasibility of a novel approach to monitoring the implementation of combination HIV prevention at national level.
Toolkit to support the generation of robust estimates of hepatitis C prevalence
5 Mar 2020 - European surveillance data show on-going transmission of viral hepatitis across the European Union and European Economic Area (EU/EEA). The available notification data however, do not provide a clear epidemiological picture of hepatitis C in Europe. Prevalence data from population surveys are a key source of information to complement the surveillance data for hepatitis C due to the limitations of surveillance for hepatitis: the infection is often asymptomatic and notifications are strongly influenced by local testing practices. The overarching aim of this toolkit is to gain a better understanding of the HCV epidemiology in the EU/EEA.
