Long-term Surveillance Strategy 2014-2020 (revised)
This is the revised version of the long-term surveillance strategy for 2014–2020. It is divided into 17 targets under six priority areas, each with strategic actions to reach them, their European added value and impact on the Member States as well as risks and their possible mitigation.
The previous version is found below.
Strategy for the external quality assessment of public health microbiology laboratories

Framework for a strategy for infectious disease surveillance in Europe
Good surveillance data are the cornerstone for public health action and planning, as well as for policy making. Europe is facing new challenges. With increasing globalization and interconnecting in the world and with free movement of people and goods across the borders, diseases move fast around the globe and disease outbreaks are increasingly often multi-national.
Single programming document 2019–2021
2019 will be a year of transformation for Europe. Despite these changes, ECDC will further demonstrate its efficiency and usefulness by providing added value in the area of European public health. The Single Programming Document constitutes an essential element for the guidance of ECDC’s work and its resource allocation.
Surveillance of communicable diseases in the European Union - A long-term strategy: 2008-2013
This long-term vision and strategy on the future surveillance of communicable diseases in the EU has been developed to help direct the decisions for the long-term development of the European surveillance system.
Strategies for disease-specific programmes 2010–2013
This document sets out the strategic priorities for all six ECDC disease-specific programmes from 2010 to 2013 based on a short description of the epidemiological background, context in which ECDC works on that specific disease or disease group, and defined gaps that require action at the European Union (EU) level.
ECDC Annual Work Programme 2016
In accordance with ECDC’s Founding Regulation, the Centre’s work is guided by an Annual Programme of work based on a revisable Multi-annual Programme. The second Strategic Multi-annual Programme covers the period 2014-2020. The present document presents the proposed Work Programme of ECDC for 2016, including the resources, both in terms of budget and staff.
Single Programming Document 2017
ECDC Work Programme, renamed ‘Single Programming Document’ includes two parts: the first part presents our objectives and priorities for the next three years while the second part provides more detail on the specific objectives and expected outputs for 2017. This new structure aligned content-wise with ECDC Strategic Multi-annual Programme 2014-2020, and with the new guidelines from the European Commission now used by all EU agencies, aims at providing a more predictable horizon, with rolling multiannual objectives to be adjusted every year, as well as a clearer presentation that should help our stakeholders as well as Budgetary Authority to more easily review and understand the content of our work.
Annual Work Programme 2015
The Annual Work Programme for 2015 has been developed based on the Strategic Multi-annual Programme (SMAP) 2014–2020. In relation to this, ECDC will further reinforce the: collaboration and cooperation with EU institutions, Member States and international partners; consolidate its core and support functions; strengthen the role and outputs of the seven disease programmes; and ensure that leadership, administration and ICT efficiently support the core operations of the Centre. The Work Programme has also been prepared with a clear focus on ECDC values, developed in 2010: “service orientation”, “quality based” and “one ECDC”.
