Abstract: Control of communicable diseases plays a vital role in the achievement of "Health for All". In the Eastern Mediterranean Region, we have an ultimate goal for communicable disease control, which is to "Make our Region a place in which nobody dies or seriously suffers from a communicable disease that is preventable or curable". This goal can be achieved by making effective use of an essential package of prevention and treatment activities that can be delivered through the primary health care network in all countries. Focus must be put on what is practical and achievable within a specific time-frame and resources should be directed to specific geographical areas. In order to give direction to those control efforts, seven visions have been identified with focus on disease-specific challenges. The ultimate goal and the seven visions are described in detail in the Annual Report 2004 of the Division of Communicable Disease Control
