Response plan to control and manage the threat of multidrug-resistant gonorrhoea in Europe
This response plan is designed to prevent the spread of multidrug-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae (MDR NG) in the EU/EEA in the context of the possible emergence of untreatable gonorrhoea
Toolkit to support the generation of robust estimates of hepatitis C prevalence
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.
Toolkit for investigation of cases of Avian influenza in humans
In order to increase preparedness to respond to possible cases and clusters of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza A/H5N1 in humans in Europe, the ECDC has prepared a toolkit for the European Union member states.
Assessing communicable disease control and prevention in EU enlargement countries
This technical document presents a package of tools for the assessment of public health capacities of enlargement countries (EU Candidate Countries and EU Potential Candidate Countries) in the area of communicable disease prevention and control. ECDC has been working with enlargement countries since 2006 in order to strengthen their capacities to implement EU legislation, fulfil the necessary requirements, and meet a core set of accession criteria in this field.
Toolkit for investigation and response to Food and Waterborne Disease Outbreaks with an EU dimension
The purpose of this toolkit is to provide investigators with a series of tools that can be useful during an investigation of a European FWD outbreak, i.e. an outbreak that involves at least two EU Member States.
Behavioural surveillance toolkitArchived
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.
