Second meeting of the CCEE-Baltic States Communicable Disease Network : report on a WHO meeting, Portoroz, Slovenia 20-22 June 2002
AbstractOne of WHO's main means of creating a global system for the surveillance of disease is the development of a network of networks: linking local, regional, national and international networks of laboratories and medical or surveillance centres. With support from the WHO Regional Office for Europe, the countries of central and eastern Europe (CCEE) and the Baltic states formed: 1) a communicable disease network (CEE-CDN) that proposed to establish an early warning and response system; and 2) a surveillance network to help eliminate measles. At its second meeting, the participants approved the establishment of the early warning system (after pilot testing), and recommended that all CDN countries actively participate in it and in the exchange of data on measles. They also agreed on their role in contributing to the revision of the WHO International Health Regulations, and adopted mechanisms to manage CDN and targets for its future development, including training components and evaluation standards
