Expanded Programme on Immunization : report on the seventh WHO meeting of national programmes managers, Berlin 10-12 November 1997
AbstractThe purposes of the Meeting were to introduce the European health for all policy for the twenty-first century, to discuss measles elimination, to advocate the strengthening of disease surveillance and development of laboratory networks, to present cost-benefit analysis models as tools for decision-makers, to discuss the systems of reporting on diseases covered by the WHO Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) and to present progress on poliomyelitis eradication/certification and diphtheria control. Essential components of a measles elimination plan for the WHO European Region were presented and the national programme managers endorsed the previous recommendation of the EPI European Advisory Group, that the elimination strategy, based on identification of susceptibility, was the most appropriate approach for the Region. Countries would need to categorize the control achieved through their current measles strategies, make appropriate analyses to estimate susceptibility and identify the appropriate way forward. The national programme managers agreed that continued efforts were needed to improve surveillance, especially for poliomyelitis, measles, hepatitis B and diphtheria. They acknowledged the progress towards poliomyelitis elimination, recognized the obstacles and reviewed the certification process
