Tuberculosis surveillance and monitoring in Europe 2015
The seventh report launched jointly by ECDC and the WHO Regional Office for Europe indicates that, despite notable progress in the past decade, tuberculosis (TB) is still a public health concern in many countries across Europe.
Monitoring the use of whole-genome sequencing in infectious disease surveillance in Europe 2015–2017
The results of the third pan-EU/EEA survey presented in this report showed that by mid-2017 the vast majority of national public health reference laboratories in EU/EEA countries had access to whole genome sequencing based typing of diverse microbial pathogens for investigations of infection and drug resistance transmission.
ECDC strategic framework for the integration of molecular and genomic typing into European surveillance and multi-country outbreak investigations
This strategic framework document presents a proposed list of priority pathogens/diseases and outlines technical implementation options for the medium-term integration (2019–2021) of molecular/genomic typing information into EU-level surveillance and multi-country outbreak investigations.
EU Laboratory Capability Monitoring System (EULabCap): Report on 2016 survey of EU/EEA country capabilities and capacities
This report for 2016, which presents the indicator results for EU and EEA (European Economic Area) countries, aims to help policymakers identify possible areas for action and to evaluate the impact of capacity strengthening activities and health system reforms.
Molecular typing for surveillance of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in the EU/EEA
This report describes the geographical and temporal distribution of multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) using molecular typing data reported by European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) Member States for 2015 and the preceding years.
Gonococcal antimicrobial susceptibility surveillance in Europe, 2017
The overall aim of Euro-GASP is to strengthen the surveillance of gonococcal antimicrobial susceptibility in EU/EEA Member States in order to provide quality-assured data to inform gonorrhoea treatment guidelines. This report presents the results from the 2017 gonococcal antimicrobial susceptibility sentinel surveillance.

Gonococcal antimicrobial susceptibility surveillance in Europe, 2013
During 2013, the European Gonococcal Antimicrobial Surveillance Programme (Euro-GASP) followed the biannual decentralised and centralised testing model used in previous years, requesting participating laboratories to collect gonococcal isolates during two periods (April/May and October/November).
