Surveillance Network for Invasive Haemophilus Influenzae in Europe - 1999 - 2000
The BIOMED II Hib surveillance project in 9 EU countries and 2 non EU countries (1996-99) was established to describe the epidemiology of invasive Haemophilus influenzae and describe the risk factors associated with vaccine failure using different vaccines and schedules. Using the framework already established in the above project, a DG SANCO surveillance network project for invasive H.influenzae disease was established in all 15 EU countries and 5 non-EU countries (2000-2001) to improve epidemiological information and laboratory capacity to characterise isolates of these two invasive bacterial infections.
