Operational targets for EPI diseases
AbstractTarget 5 of the regional strategy for health for all included the elimination of indigenous measles, congenital rubella, diphtheria, poliomyelitis, neonatal tetanus, syphilis and malaria from the European Region by the year 2000. In 1984, the Second Conference on Immunization Policies in Europe endorsed the target and set operational targets up to 1990. In 1991, the WHO Regional Committee for Europe added mumps to the list of diseases to be eliminated and removed syphilis and malaria. Expert group meetings added operational targets on EPI diseases in 1992 and pertussis in 1993. This paper sets out the targets as they now stand and the rationale for the revisions
