Abstract: The meeting of countries of the Dubrovnik Pledge on infectious disease control was held from 28-20 August 2002 in Vlora, Albania. The objectives of the meeting were to review the recent trends in the capacity of national public health surveillance systems, to respond to health needs or inform about the control of infectious diseases in the population, including the early warning systems for the timely detection of the occurrence of epidemics, including HIV/AIDS; to review the current surveillance systems, including training opportunities; to identify the needs and agree on the mechanisms to strengthen the capacity of national surveillance systems; and to identify and agree on the ways national systems might be better linked to regional and global alert and response networks. All participating countries made a presentation on their current epidemiological situation as well as social economical, geographical and demographical characteristics. The participants were then divided into two working groups on strengthening national surveillance systems and the training needs for surveillance systems. In a plenary session results and recommendations were presented and a summary table of proposed activities was adopted
