Measles and rubella surveillance and monitoring vaccination coverage in countries with complex health care systems : Vaccine-preventable Diseases and Immunization : Paris, France 20-21 September 2004
AbstractThe Strategic plan for measles and congenital rubella infection in the WHO European Region, was developed and implemented in 2002 and includes two objectives for 2010: interruption of indigenous measles transmission and the prevention of congenital rubella infection (CRI; less than one case of congenital rubella syndrome [CRS] per 100 000 live births). It has been recommended that the plan be revised to include the objective of measles and rubella elimination by 2010 along with CRI prevention. The Surveillance guidelines for measles and congenital rubella infection in the WHO European Region, published in 2003, were developed to meet the previous measles and rubella control targets but need to be revised to strengthen the CRS surveillance component and accommodate the rubella elimination objective. Thirty-five participants representing 20 Member States and WHO participated in a technical consultation to address outstanding surveillance issues related to these diseases. Eight recommendations were made regarding definitions and surveillance performance indicators for use in the WHO European Region

Surveillance guidelines for measles and congenital rubella infection in the European Region of WHO World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe (EUR/03/5043701, 2003)Measles and rubella remain important causes of vaccine-preventable disease and death in the European Region of WHO. The Strategic Plan for Measles and Congenital Rubella Infection in the European Region of WHO identifies key strategies to meet the targets for interrupting indigenous measles transmission and preventing congenital rubella infection (<1 case of congenital rubella syndrome per 100 000 live births) by 2010; strengthening surveillance systems by vigorous case investigation and laboratory confirmation is one of these key strategies. ...
