Guidance on community engagement for public health events caused by communicable disease threats in the EU/EEA
This guidance on community engagement for public health emergency preparedness is intended for public health authorities in EU/EEA Member States. It is meant to provide step-by-step technical support to Member States who are initiating or professionalising their core community engagement capacity. The guidance is organised according to the three core stages of the preparedness cycle: anticipation, response, and recovery.
