European regional consultation on the introduction of second-generation HIV surveillance guidelines : report on a WHO consultation, Copenhagen, Denmark 14-15 November 2000
AbstractThe rapid spread of HIV infection necessitates the introduction of sensitive methods not only for monitoring the transmission of the disease but also for possibly predicting where the infection might appear in particular areas or population groups. The Consultation brought together experts in HIV surveillance from the countries of central and eastern Europe to discuss the introduction of the second-generation surveillance guidelines developed by WHO headquarters. These guidelines recommend the introduction not only of case reporting and prevalence studies but also behavioural surveillance in order to monitor HIV-associated risk behaviour and thus to predict where HIV infection could spread. They also highlight the additional support to risk assessment that could be gained from the surveillance of sexually transmitted infections. The Consultation reviewed available experience from ongoing surveillance systems in some European countries, and made important recommendations on the introduction of second-generation surveillance guidelines. This should be done through a series of training seminars, by revising national surveillance protocols, and by integrating HIV surveillance into existing national health surveillance systems
