Protecting health in Europe: our vision for the future
This brochure explains ECDC’s multiannual strategy (2007-2013) for a general audience. First, it looks at past and present infectious disease threats in Europe and the factors that contribute to Europe’s vulnerability to infectious diseases, then gives an overview of ECDC’s seven priority work areas that set out how we will work to improve these issues. This brochure is available in all official EU languages, Icelandic and Norwegian in 2009.
ECDC's service standards and values
Certain service standards and values guide the ECDC in its work. These include transparency, independence and open access to scientific content. ECDC also strives to be a quality-driven, service-minded organisation that acts as one team.
