STI and HIV prevention in men who have sex with men in Europe
This report gives an overview of the current status of STI and HIV among men who have sex with men (MSM) in EU/EEA countries. It reviews HIV and STI prevention interventions targeted at MSM, and the evaluations of those interventions.
Assessing the burden of key infectious diseases affecting migrant populations in the EU/EEA
This report presents the main findings of an ECDC project to assess the burden of infectious diseases among migrants in the EU/EEA based on available data for specific diseases: human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis B, hepatitis C, gonorrhoea, syphilis, measles and rubella, malaria and Chagas disease.
Sexually Transmitted Infections in Europe 1990-2010

Assessing the burden of key infectious diseases affecting migrant populations in the EU/EEA: Executive summary
Antenatal screening approaches effective in preventing MTCT of HIV, HBV, syphilis and rubella in vulnerable populations
In order to collect evidence on effective types of antenatal screening intervention that are effective for population groups vulnerable to MTCT, a review of the existing published literature was performed.
Public health guidance on HIV and STI prevention among men who have sex with men
This guidance, based on a systematic review of the literature and expert opinion, suggests that there is good evidence to ensure that some key components are considered for inclusion in national and sub-national public health programmes in countries in Europe.
Behavioural surveillance toolkit
The overall objective of this work is to support the development of a key set of indicators in order to ensure availability of comparable behavioural data and to support Member States to implement behavioural surveillance or surveys by preparing a user-friendly toolkit and framework (protocol) for the implementation of behavioural surveillance and second generation surveillance related to HIV and STI in Europe.
Effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of antenatal screening for HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis and rubella susceptibility
This literature review was conducted as part of a project evaluating the effectiveness of antenatal screening for HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis and rubella susceptibility in EU/EEA Member States.
